Covenanters' memorial
A memorial to Covenanters Robert Lockhart and Gabriel Thomson who were shot by Highlandmen and Dragoons under the command of Archibald MacAulay, laird of Ardincaple for their adherence to the Solemn League and Covenant as they returned from a conventicle on 1st May 1685, stands in the kirkyard. The inscription on the memorial has been transcribed from a more ancient gravestone erected ‘after the Revolution’ in the north-west corner of the kirkyard.
