050 [Situation] About 13 chains SW [South West] of the house of Ethiebeaton
The site of this chapel is completely invisible, and ploughed over. It was one of the five churches which existed in the parish previous to the reformation. The place known still as the site is situated in a field at Ethiebeaton, and as tradition connects the name of Cardinal Beaton with a Castle which occupied this ground, it might, very probably, have been merely a private place of worship attached to the Cardinal's princely residence

Sheet 50 No 16 Trace 6 -- Parish of Monifieth -- Described by John Kiernan R Eng [Royal Engineers]

The foundation of this Chapel was dug many years ago
but there are some persons still living who remember seeing
this foundation. No trace of burial ground was discovered. The
name Chapel Dockie is well known in the locality and was so
long previous to the publication of the new Stat. Acct. [Statistical Account] as Mr.
Arkley and others affirm; but there is no trace of any building
like a Castle nor could the writer of this discover any tradition
to point the site or probable site of such. It is stated by
many that the estate or at least part of it belonged to Cardinal
Beaton; but no one remembers any vestige or trace of castle or
mansion of note being ever seen here.
