Millburn Church and Kirkyard

This was Millburn Free Church; whether it was the work of J T Rochead or George Meikle Kemp has been the subject of debate. See LinkExternal link (at Historic Environment Scotland) for its listed building report. The following account is from Donald MacLeod's "Historic Families ... of the Lennox" (1891): "In 1845 the late William Campbell, laird of Tullichewan, erected at his own expense the elegant small Gothic chapel of Millburn which is adorned with a fine ornate steeple and also secured ample ground around the same for sleeping place for the dead. This place of prayer was opened on December 14th, 1845."
