Statement of Interest

Situated at the head of Loch Doine. Dorothy Wordsworth notes that this was the burying place of the MacGregors, who held extensive lands in the area. She describes it as having 'ornamental balls on the four corners of the wall'. The previous list description mentions a broken inscribed stone of 1771. There is also a MacGregor Mausoleum in Balquhidder Parish at Auchtubh.
