The chapel was probably on the lands of *St Catherinestoun, attested only once (1529). The name of the chapel has not yet been found in any source, but its existence may be inferred from RMS iii no. 760: 'Brigland called St Catherine's toun [villam Sancte Katherine] with the chapel and donation of its chaplainry and buildings beside it'. Given that the chapel is granted with the constabulary of Kinghorn, we can assume that the chapel lay on the south side of the bridge which crosses the Tiel here, and which forms the parish boundary, in the medieval parish of Kinghorn. This part of Kinghorn was transferred to the parish of Kirkcaldy & Dysart in 1901 (Taylor with Márkus i, 395).
