Dalmore is a small hamlet just east of Carloway along the A858 Garynahine - Barvas road. It lies 1 miles from the main road. The cemetery is located at the end of the road, with ample carparking and a toiletblock available.

The cemetery stands directly above the beach, which is fronted by coastal defences. Please note that a new cemetery is also present, just south of the main cemetery across a small stream. This does not contain wargraves.

Grid reference: NB216449

Safety note: Anyone tempted to swim at the beach is STRONGLY discouraged from doing so, due to the presence of strong undercurrents.
