Notes

Aberdeen Breviary, on the feast of Saints Baya and Maura, states that at this place 'a chapel is to be found, handsomely built afterwards in her honour, and those who come there devoutly are not cheated of their just desires' (In cuius postea honore capella satis decenter extructa reperitur, ad quam pie uenientes suis iustis non defraudantur desideriis) (Ab. Brev. (Macquarrie), 262).
