St Bride's Chapel
St Bride's Chapel dates from around the end of the 13th century and stands on a prominent natural mound near the farm of Kilbride, which itself takes its name from the chapel.
The remains of St Bride's Chapel stand to roof height and measure 13.2m E-W by 6.9m over walls 0.9m wide of roughly coursed masonry and pinnings bonded with lime mortar. There are two lancet windows in the E gable and one at the E end of the N and S walls. There is an arched entrance in the W end of the S wall, and two communion aumbries in the E wall.
The chapel was apparently in use until the Reformation and contains a memorial to the Campbells of "Rudale".
