Buchanan burial ground, Callander
Buchanan burial ground, Callander
See NN6207 : Buchanan burial ground, Callander for a view of the knoll from a distance. The stone structure was originally a chapel, but it is now a roofless enclosure, contain memorials for the Buchanans of Leny and their descendants. There are other Buchanan memorials on the knoll, outwith the former chapel; some of them are visible in this photograph.

Built into the former chapel is what is evidently a relic of a yet earlier structure, namely, a finial (visible here as a pale object above the entrance) inscribed "Buchanan Chapel 1214".

The ruined chapel is mentioned in the Old Statistical Account (in the report on Callander Parish); the report compares the knoll on which it is situated with the nearby mound of NN6207 : Tom ma Chisaig (meaning "Knoll of Kessaig").

The relevant parts of the Old Statistical Account are quoted at NN6207 : Tom ma Chisaig, and need not be repeated here.

The link in the end-note (below) provides further details. See NN6207 : Buchanan burial ground, Callander for a view of the interior of the ruined chapel, and for links to some of the memorials within.
