Notes

NMRS: St Cyrus Old Church. This is the site of the medieval kirk, dedicated in 1242, replaced in 1632. According to Scott there is a well dedicated to St Cyrus nearby. No sign on OS maps. The author of the Old Statistical Account for this parish (xliv, 174) proposed a St Gregory as the dedicatee of the church, but this is not likely.
