"Are still legible the burial place of the Weirs of Kirkhall is
"the sole exception to this indiscriminate desecration though
" their monument is not coeval with the existence of the church.
" It is a small enclosure formed by a thorn hedge and a stone wall
"and sheltered by an encompassing row of Ash and Beech trees.
