DRON (Detached) (Continued) 109 ; 110 [continued from page 3]
There have been in former times 2 small chapels in this parish. One of these which stood in the east corner of the parish is now totally in ruins no vestige of it remaining except some part of the foundation below ground and human skulls and bones which are sometimes dug up or discovered in the face of a bank where the soil is washed away by the impetuous torrents of the Farg on the verge of which it has stood just at the place where it issues from the mountains into the plain. The other is in the west end of the parish and still remains in a ruinous state the walls are tolerably entire with an enclosed burial ground around it which is still the place of interment for many families in the parish and neighbourhood. This part of the parish which is entirely separated from the rest by an interjacent part of the parish of Dunbarnie bears the name of Ecclesiamagirdle, the origin of which is uncertain, but probably has been given in honour of some saint; some explain it to signify "The Church of St. Magdalen". These chapels may probably have been places of worship erected for the conveniency of the religious in this corner who were dependent on the Abbey of Lindores.
