Notes

NMRS records (Canmore ID 33851): This is a natural gravel ridge whose highest point has been built up by timber, stones and midden material. It is said to have been occupied by two monks of Coupar Angus in 1234, and in 1508 there is a record of 'the building and repair of the chapel and houses'. A great number of artefacts have been excavated from the site (chessmen, bronze vessels, silver ornaments etc.) (NMRS, q.v. for fuller description of the site). The chapel was dedicated to the Holy Trinity.
