Notes

Shown in Gothic script on OS 6 inch map (1st edn). It stands near what is marked as a 'Kirkyard' on OS 6 inch maps, and to the east of Loch Patrick. OS Name Book (1850) recorded its recent use as a place sought out for cures for 'all sorts of diseases', and rags left as offerings. Nothing remains at the site now (NMRS).
