Full Description

'There are various references to a chapel used by the Bishops and dedicated to St Katherine. Writing in 1769 Rev. Alexander Pope of Reay describes it as near the Bishop's castle (ND15NW 18, at ND 138 599) with nothing remaining except a heap of rubbish.
In Sinclair's book The Gunns it is described as having stood in a green spot full of stones near Quoycrook but the exact location of the site is now unknown.'
