Galson Old Cemetery is located on the coast, near the village of South Galson [Gabhsainn bho Dheas], 19 miles north of Stornoway. There is a regular bus service from Stornoway. This cemetery can only be reached after passing through 3 gates (please close them all behind you), some of which may require to be climbed over. There is no dedicated carpark for the cemetery, so please be considerate when parking in the village. Cars must be parked before you reach the first gate.

Go down the village road of South Galson, from the A857 road (Stornoway to Port of Ness). After half a mile, carry on straight ahead to a gate, where the road veers left after half a mile. Pass through a gate - please do not take vehicles - and follow the strip of tarmac, then a clear track over grass through another two gates. The tarmac reappears shortly before the cemetery proper. The wargrave is located left of the ruin as you enter the graveyard.
