Notes

NGR given for the site of St Maolrubha's church, Kilmory. NMRS records: St Maelrubha's Chapel, Kilmory, Kilmory, Kirkton, (HBD No. 11) is of uncertain date, possibly c. 1200. It is rubble-walled, oblong, gabled and roofless. There are two splayed round-headed lancet windows in the S wall, one in the N, a couplet on E, and a doorway at SW. The floor is grass-grown and there are ancient grave-slabs, font etc. The church and churchyard probably conceal all traces of an earlier site (Campbell and Sandeman 1964).
