Kilkenneth chapel, is the church after which Kilkenneth (literally Church of St Kenneth) is named. Dating from the late middle ages the building has become surrounded and partly buried by sand dunes. The church is dedicated to Saint Kenneth, a contemporay of Saint Columba, Scotland's most famous cleric. Saint Kenneth is reputed to have lived on Tiree in the late 6thC. This might suggest that the current ruin was in fact a late middle ages replacement of a much older building.

Occassionally graves are uncovered although no burials have taken place there since the 17thC.
