NS 0349 6126. St Ninian's Chapel (name verified) is situated on a narrow peninsula. The chapel oriented E-W measures 6.3m by 4.0m internally and the walls are 1.2m wide and 0.9m high with an off centre entrance in the S side.

It is enclosed by the remains of a near circular stone wall 24.0m E-W by 23.5m transversely overall. This wall, best preserved in the S, has several courses of masonry (up to 0.3m high) visible in the outer face whilst the inner face is barely traceable and it is not possible to give an accurate wall width. There is now no evidence of either the altar, the burials or the kitchen middens.

Surveyed at 1:10 000.
