044 The site of a Chapel the foundations of which was razed a number of years ago by the present tenant, P Guthrie for purpose of filling drains &c.
"After the parish Church was filled with Protestants the proprietors of Foffarty, aided by the Papists in the neighbourhood, set about building a popish Chapel on his property, & appointed a priest to conduct the Romish service, to whom he gave a Manse and Glebe &c. That chapel was erected on the Margin of a den at the foot of the Kincaldrum hill. It was burnt by a party of Royal Dragoons in 1745 and remained rooofless & ruinous for many years. A considerable portion of the walls were distinctly Visible so late as 1816"
