Killilan Former township, absorbed into a sporting estate in the 19th century. Burial ground, said to contain, within its oval walls, the grave of St. Fillan (aligned in the opposite direction to all the others). A fragment of medieval walling near the site of the former lodge supports the local tradition that he founded a religious cell here in the 8th century. Surviving estate buildings include: community hall with leaded lights, 1933 ; chauffeur's house (now shepherd's cottage); simple Uplan stables; piend-roofed manager's house, c.1760, said to be earlier than the demolished lodge; keeper's house with kennels (beneath monkey puzzle tree); generator building.
