Tolsta Chaolais is a small village, a few miles south of Carloway off the A858 road. It has a small graveyard, not easy to locate. When passing through the village south to north, there is a sideroad to the left, just past the letterbox. The graveyard is half a mile up this road.

Please take care not to confuse Tolsta Chaolais with North Tolsta, which lies 15 miles north of Stornoway on the east coast of Lewis.

Grid reference: NB 189384
