Introduction

The present parish church of Knockando and its graveyard is built on, or close to, the site of an earlier church, which was either ruinous by the time a new building was constructed in 1757 or was demolished soon after the new church was built. There is no trace of this early church in the graveyard today. The Ordnance Survey, in the 1870s, noted a hollow in the graveyard, which may have been the site.
