THE STATISTICAL ACCOUNT refers to former 16th century church
and disjoined burial aisle dated 1586. This had been intended
as a 'burying place to the then family of Ballindalloch'. An
appropriate site for new mausoleum commissioned by George
(later Sir George) MacPherson-Grant of Ballindalloch and
Invereshie who was buried there in 1846.
