The NGR given is for the highest point of the island. NMRS records a tradition that there was a chapel of St Mirren on the island, 'St Mirren's Chapel'. This may refer a now vanished building which stood within an enclosure about 15m square with walls 2m thick traditionally understood to be a burial ground (NMRS). In the early seventeenth century it was recorded: 'Inche Mourin twa myl of lenth, with a hous of twa house hight. whereunto one of Duk Murdocs sons fled, when his brethren were execute by King James the first, it is old building, and is cald Chastell Inche Mourin, in this yle ar many fallow dear, whair the kings used hunting sumtyme, it hath also plenty of wood' (Geog. Coll. ii, 602).
