Dovedote; late 17th-early 18th century square roofless
rubble dovecote with centre door in south elevation and
flightholes above. Rat course encircles building and
serves as alighting ledge to flightholes; vestiges of
upper rat course across east and west gables; blocked
centre rear vent. Ruinous interior, but some stone nesting
boxes survive together with some brick buttresses.
Memorial; simple square rubble pedestal supporting rubble
plinth with stone plaque inscribed "The Unknown Kirk"
sited immediately in front of dovecote.
Early chapel site. Cote resembles that on Stroma dated 1677.
