"Soon after Loch Cil Chriosd the road begins to rise and passes a small lochan. Near here is the site of the old church of Kilbride, the ruins of which have now almost entirely disappeared, though a little way beyond it traces of a stone circle, certainly very much earlier, can still be seen."

- Otta F. Swire, Skye: The Island and its Legends, 1961, p. 222.

Saint Bride's role in the christianisation of this site (Kilbride means "Church of Saint Bride") can, perhaps, reveal something of this place's pre-christian significance.
