Abstract


The ruined chapel of St Fillan's is traditionally connected with Robert the Bruce. Little survives other than a heart-shaped font. The graveyard contains carved slabs and there is a well nearby. There are also a number of cairns, cup-marked boulders, and a stone circle in the immediate vicinity. A boulder near Helensburgh has many cup-marks and the site of St Bride's Chapel at Glen Fruin is in fact a cairn. Across-slab is preserved nearby. An incised Latin cross from Ballivoulin is illustrated here.
