014 A small piece of ground near the centre of Inchmurrin supposed to have been used, when St Mirren's Chapel stood on the Island, as a burying ground. There are now no traces of any building, nor does any person in the neighbourhood recollect seeing any.

Stirlingshire -- Ph [Parish] of Buchanan

"A chapel, still known as St. Mirren's Chapel,
marking, by the name of its patron saint, some
old connexion with the Abbey of Paisley, - stands
now in ruins upon Inchmuryn, the largest island
of Loch Lomond, and is probably of much
older date than the Castle erected there by the
Earls of Lennox".

I think this is evidently the site of
the old Chapel referred to in the
Origines Parochiales Scotiae.
