Alness Burial Ground

The burial ground of the former Alness Parish Church is on the western edge of the village, on the north side of the B817 road.  The church is a roofless ruin, fenced off as a dangerous building.

Modern cemetery extensions lie north of the old church.  The town of Alness is divided between two parishes, Alness Parish and Rosskeen Parish, the latter lies east of the River Averon.
