Description

The monument consists of the remains of a pre-Reformation church called St Aedh's or Kilmadock church.

The ruin sits in a walled burial ground N of the River Teith and E of the Annet Burn. It belonged to the Priory of Inchmahome. The church has been rectangular on plan, its surviving portion consists of the E gable and part of the adjoining side walls. A lean-to, stone-roofed burial vault has been built incorporating the remainder of the N wall

of the church. Another walled burial enclosure projects from the E end.

The area to be scheduled is irregular and measures a maximum of 60m E-W by 50m N-S to include the church and burial ground, as shown in red on the accompanying map.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as a chapel of Medieval date which has connections with Inchmahome priory, added to which it may preserve further underlying evidence, the investigation of which may increase our knowledge of ecclesiastical architecture, parish organisation and settlement evolution during the period of its use and subsequent abandonment.
