Notes: A rural location in Glen Prosen. The track leading to and running alongside the ruined chapel is though to be an old drove road. The chapel was built in 1693 but the size of the yews suggest a much later planting, perhaps to protect the building once it was no longer to be used as a place of worship in the 1860s.
