033.15 A chapel dedicated to St. [Saint] Ninian formerly stood where the farmsteading of Muirhouse is now built. No information can be obtained respecting it: it is however probable that it shared the fate of most religious houses at the Reformation, and continued in ruins until the end of the last century, when it was removed to make way for the present farmsteading of Muirhouse, in the construction of which the stones which composed the walls of the old church were used.
"In the South west of the old parish of Covintoun was formerly a chapel dedicated to St. Ninian"
