See NMRS for historical notes. No remains survive, though part seems to have been occupied in 1709. Pont MS no. 33 (Renfrewshire) shows 'Chapel' at about this spot. In 1504 lands are recorded as belonging to the chapel of St Brigid in the parish of Lochwinnoch. If it is the lands which are located in Lochwinnoch, the chapel may be in Kilbarchan. But it may be that the charter's reference to the parish of Lochwinnoch refers to the chapel rather than its lands, in which case the chapel must be located on the west side of St Bride's Burn, which is the parish boundary.
