Crossbost is a village in North Lochs, south of Stornoway. It is easiest approached from the A859 road to Harris from Stornoway. Turn left at Liurbost, and drive the length of that village. A mile after (finally) leaving Liurbost, the road veers left into Crossbost proper. A sideroad is signposted for the War Memorial, behind which stands the church and extensive carparking.

Crossbost cemetery consists of three graveyards. The one containing wargraves lies closest to the shore.

Grid reference: NB386245
