Notes

Four parish territories meet at the confluence of waters here: Kildrummy (NE), Towie (detached NW), Strathdon (detached SW) and Towie (SE) (OS 6 " 1st edn). The chapel is a few yards away from the confluence. Access from Towie to its detached hill-section would be through the gap, between Chapel Ronald and St Ronald's Well. NMRS records that by the mid-nineteenth century only the foundations survived, but by 1968 these had disappeared. The nearby St Ronald's Well was drained and destroyed before 1866. A silver ring found nearby may have been part of a burial here.
