Magdalen Chapel
Magdalen Chapel
This building is really hard to photograph well, being on the south side of a fairly narrow street. Its history begins in 1537 when Michael MacQueen bequeathed money to build an almshouse chapel. His widow Janet Rynd had to put up a further 2000 when no other funds materialised. The chapel was built between 1541 and 1544 and the steeple was added in 1620-1644, built by John Tailefer, mason, and Robert Wilson, wright. With the death of Janet Rund in 1553, patronage passed to the Incorporation of Hammermen, with whom it long retained links. Nowadays it is the premises of the Scottish Reformation Society.
