Secluded, extensive, mountainous and, this parish is peculiarly favourable to place-name preservation. Local denominations of all kinds are accordingly both numerous and interesting. There is one river, the Colligan, and high up on the mountain, at the northeast angle of the parish, a couple of small lakes. Besides the Church from which the parish is named, there are sites of at least, three others.
