This small cemetery is located within the machair, north of the straggling village of Sollas in North Uist. It is not signposted from the main road. The access road is located mile west of the Co-op at Sollas, and leads north into the machair / farmland towards the dunes. There is a tiny turning place at the cemetery gate.

Please note that the graveyard is situated on top of a hillock, and is uneven underfoot.
