The statement of a correspondent
quoted in the New Stat. Acct. [Statistical Account] of
Bonhill Ph. [Parish]

"At Auchinheglish, on the lands of Auchindenanrie,
was an old burying ground which was used within the
last century. It probably belonged to a place of
worship which gave name to the field, and the ruins
of which are pointed out when the lake is low, at a
short distance from the shore, having been
overflowed by the gradual encroachment of the water."
