This name applies to thee remains of an old church Situated in a Small Graveyard in the Village of Benvie. It was the Parish Church of Benvie untill that Parish got annexed to Liff, since that time (about 1745) it has fallen into disuse and no part of it now remains only the Western gable. It could not be ascertained about what probable time it was erected, but it seems to have been erected previous to the Reformation as there is at present an old font at the South end of the gable which is said to have been used for the purpose of holding Holy Water
