Notes

Excavations reveal remains of a 12th-century church overlying possible remains of a pre-Norse church, which in turn overlie a possible Iron Age site (a wheel-house?). St Ninian's Isle treasure found here under a cross-marked slab in the floor of the church - Pictish, possibly ecclesiastical, silver (NMRS).
