Notes

Simon Taylor notes: The medieval parish kirk, now in ruins, lies in a very fine hollow near the Balnagown River (the Rory). The walled enclosure can still be clearly traced amongst the thick undergrowth (visited 21.08.01). A small burn runs down the west side of the site. Alston states that the earliest legible stone in its walled burial ground is dated 1593 (1999, 182), but I could find no stones at all amongst the undergrowth.

Parish notes

Watson 1904, 58 - no dedication known. For the second element of some early forms, see also Kilmuir Easter. Cowan assumes the form in Moray Reg. no. 75 (1227), (printed as Locuinethereth, probably for Locumethereth) ) to be Logie Wester (Cowan 1967, 138). However it is more likely to be Logie Meddet, later Logie Easter.
