Notes

The NGR given is for the area around OS Digimap Chapel Head. CORPUS records of this area: 'The site of the church of Obney is no longer known with certainty. However, there is a possibility that it was at Chapel Head, a promontory above the steep south bank of the Garry Burn, about 300 metres north of Blairquhan and about 500 metres south-west of Nether Obney. There are records of two coins and the head of a glass image being found when the foundations of a building known as the Chapel were being cleared here in 1821. But nothing now survives above ground of any structures or enclosure.'
