Notes

Although sometimes described as a nunnery, the records clearly indicate it was a hospital whose master had payments made to him from 1327. In 1425 it was described as a poor's hospital, governed by secular layment. It stood near the modern Magdalene's Farm, past which went the old road from Perth to Edinburgh (NMRS, q.v. for further details).
