St. Euchans
Mr. James Stewart, Kinrossie, who supposes it to be a corruption from St. Vigeans. Ukans appears to be the common pronunciation, and the T or D of the authorities being silent the spelling Euchans will (after the St.) answer either of them. Mr.Stewart recommends this modification.

Supposed Site of Chapel
J B L. Col. [Lieutenant Colonel]
We have however bo allusion a Chapel Being here in any of the works of Reference, and during the Christian periods bodies were not buired in Short Stone Cists - This must then have been Earlier or a Catholic chapel - but it is just possible that from the circumstance of a copious supply of good water there may have been a humourous canonizing of the Gothic word Deoch or Deochan!
JB L. Col. [Lieutenant Colonel]

Adjacent to them, [the 8 stone cists] and previous to the making of the road between the villages of Saucher and Collace the remains of a building was very discernible which Mr. Stewart supposes to have been a chapel dedicated to St. Teuchans.
