Notes

NMRS records (Canmore ID 52540) the location of the hospital, its ownershipby Holyrood Abbey, and the likelihood that the hospital and chapel were established on the site of an earlier hermitage. 'The chapel walls, then 4' high, were destroyed in 1854, when many skeletons were found both inside and outside the chapel precincts.'
