According to Sir Kenneth Murray (Geanies House) a family tradition asserts that a chapel once stood at approximately NH 8971 7923, but there is now no trace of it, and the dedication is not known. At NH 8961 7911 are two arched gateways over a path along the cliffs where traditionally the monks from Fearn Abbey are said to have come to make their penance.
