Cemetery: Kilmuir Burial Ground, North Uist
Location: just outside Hougharry [Hogha Gearraidh], by the entrance to the Balranald Bird Reserve
Grid Ref: NF708705

I visited the cemetery at Kilmuir, near North Uist's west coast last month. Unfortunately I didn't have the CWGC list for this cemetery with me, so I only have photos of three of the six named casualties and of the four un-named casualties, plus a recent one from 2000.
