Description

BURIAL GROUND: roughly square rubble walled burial ground
enclosing remains of 1618 former parish chruch. 17th, 18th,
19th and subsequent tombstones.

T-plan form, with ball-finialled apex bellcote (no bell).

burial enclosure for families of Arndilly and Auchlunkart who

Statement of Interest

Church sites in Boharm Parish have been moved over the

centuries. The medieval chapel and burial ground were sited

50 yards N of Cauldwell Castle (Scheduled Monument), 2 miles

to SW of present burial ground. In 1618 the parish church was

built on present site, to be superseded in 1793 when another

parish church was constructed nearer the new centre of the

parish after its union with a portion of Dundurcas parish.

The 1793 church has in turn been superseded by that at

Mulben, the former Free Church.

Mural plaques in burial enclosure to MacDowall Grants of

Arndilly and Stewart (or Steuart) and Stewart-Gordons of

Auchlunkart.
