"A cross, sculptured in bold relief, upon a stone about one foot broad and eighteen inches long, is built into the south wall of Corriemony House. This stone was taken from the Knights Templar's Chapel at Temple (NH 53 SW 2)... but the date of removal is unknown ..." (NH 4312 3042) Name Book 1871

This cross, which was built into the south wall of Corriemony House, was removed by the Rev. Simpson, after Corriemony House was partially destroyed by fire in 1950, and placed in the chancel of St. Ninian's Episcopal Chapel, Glen Urquhart, where it can still be seen today. The cross is sculptured upon a block of sandstone measuring 12 x 18 inches, and is placed at the S. side of the altar.
