"Amongst the many moss-covered tombs and grave stones in the Clachan of Campsie churchyard, is the lofty, two-storey, domed 18th century burial-vault of the Kincaid-Lennox family. Few details can be seen except a flat arch on the west side bearing the date 1715 on the keystone. The upper storey is said to have been added by Miss Lennox early in the 19th century, and used by her as a waiting room between church services. When the vault was first built, coffins of the family were laid on stone shelves. This practice was later discontinued, and the interior was completely cleared at the funeral of Mrs. Kincaid Lennox in 1876, the last funeral to take place in the clachan. All the family remains now lie buried beneath the vault. The entrance to the vault is blocked by slabs which were formerly table tombs. One bears an inscription to James Kincaid, who died 13th of February1604, and the other also to a James Kincaid, who died 19th January 1606. Miss Margaret Lennox was buried there in 1832. The lintel on the entrance is marked 'closed 1884'."
