Beal (Kyloe)

This is the site of the deserted medieval village of Beal, which was first recorded in the early 13th century. By 1769, all that remained was a small hamlet on the road to Holy Island. The tithe map of 1847 shows two rows of houses and yards. Now the remains of some of these building can now be seen as earthworks.
