(NN 9020 1833) Innerpeffery chapel (NR)

OS 6"map, (1959)

A chapel of St Mary is mentioned 1365 and 1483 and in 1506/7 four chaplainries were endowed here by John, Lord Drummond. It thus appears to have been a chantry which acquired a collegiate form. In 1542 it is called a collegiate church (Easson 1957).

The existing church is doubtless 16th century and is still entire although now only used for burial.

Close to the west end is the Library of Innerpeffray founded by David, Lord Madderty in 1691.
