Revd. [Reverend] John Christie, The Manse.
061 "The finest fragment that now remains is the ruin of the Chapel, which forms the centre of the eastern side of the pentagon. It measures 36 feet by 18 inside the walls In the eastern gable, over the place where the altar Stood, is a beautiful window, Consisting of three tall narrow divisions, the mouldings and other ornaments being still in tolerable preservation. This window, with the large and elegant tower which flanks it on the North Side, are almost all the remains on which the eye can rest with pleasure, ghastly-looking masses of Stone and rubbish being nearly all that now exists of this once Splendid fabric." The building was nearly all of "firm and beutifully-chisselled ashler work." inside & outside "The Chapel was used as a place of worship, until a Comparitively recent date," vide L. Duncan's Pamphlet. Tradition reports, that the Chapel was occupied as a Magazine of forage, during the noted Siege by the forces of Edward 1st in the Year 1306.

Mr. John Blackhall. Culsh.
061 An artificial moat or fosse. Constructed for the defence of the Castle, on the South and East, until it Joined the ravine on the North which in itself is a Natural & Sufficient defence At the enterance on the Southeast there was a drawbridge accross this fosse, but, there is no accout of it ever being filled with water, indeed it is very improbable from the elevated position it ocupies. It may have been a dry moat or ditch. The fosse is now nearly all filled up, but a little declivity in the ground shows where it has been.
