ST LUKE'S CHAPEL Supposed Site of MONASTERY [nr Littlemill] Monastery (Site of) Revd. [Reverend] J Christie Kildrummy
Mr. J Beattie Littlemill
Mr. Dow Gamekeeper Clova
051 Inside of a small plantation of Mixed Wood near to Littlemill there Can be distinctly made out the track or remains of a foundation, the people in the neighbourhood Call it Sammiluak's Chapel or St. Luke's, but there is no doubt that this is the Site of one of the primitive Monasteries mentioned in Vol. II [Volume 2] part III [3] of the Proceedings of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland as "About equal distance from the river on the other side was another Monastery at Clova or Cloveth". The local tradition is the effect that this was one of the first Mission Chapels of St. Columba, who was the first to introduce Christianity into Scotland. This seems very likely from its proximity to so many Erd Houses, or Aboriginal habitations.
St. Luke, Called Sammiluak's Chapel formerly much frequented by all the northern parisches. Collections of the Shires
