was then united to that of St Bathans - Like most of the other ancient buildings in the district the remains of the Church of Strafontane, which was situated about a mile West of St. Bathans on the south side of the Monynut, have disappeared before the encroachments of the Plough. It is however but a few years ago since the foundations of this Church was extant, with the mouldering Tombstones around it - & it is said, that within a Century - (ie.1730-) burials have taken place. It is a favourite article of belief in this quarter, that a Subterranean passage exists leading from the Nunnery of St. Bathans below the Whiteadder to the Church of Strafontane, by which the Nuns went unseen to be Confessed by the Clergy there.
