Notes

The existence of this church or chapel is inferred from the analysis of the place-name Lumphinnan as G lann 'church' + personal name Finan or Fillan. The earliest form (where applied to the settlement of Lumphinnans) suggests (see Taylor with Márkus i, 150-1) a dedication to Fillan, but Finan is also suggested by some of the early forms.
