Notes

NMRS: An old graveyard called Chapel-town or Bail-an-chaibeil is the site of the separate church of Deshur, the south part of the parish of Duthil. In 1783 it was under crop. No dedication is known. Fuaran Fionntag or the Well of Virtue, famed for curing toothache, is situated nearby (A Mitchell and J Drummond 1875) There are no visible remains of a chapel or graveyard in the area indicated, which is in a cultivated field. The tradition of a chapel having been there is known locally, but no well is known of in the area (Visited by OS (R L) 4 November 1966)
