Introduction

The scant remains of a small chapel lie in an arable field in what was originally part of a large estate. It was a private chapel for Pitfour House and was built in the mid 19th century. It was said to have a small tower and pointed-arch openings. The ruins of the chapel were not positively identified during fieldwork but would appear to have been in a field under a tall crop.
