This cemetery is located west of Daliburgh in South Uist. From the crossroads, where the road to Lochboisdale and the road to Ludag and Eriskay branch off, turn west. Pass through Dalibrog an Iar and keep right. Hallan Cemetery lies at the end of the road, past a telecoms mast.

Hallan Cemetery has its own website, where all the graves have been logged and photographed.

All images of gravestones in this section are reproduced with kind permission by the Hallan Cemetery Committee.
