Search St. Brides Churchyard:

This cemetery is located approximately 5 kilometers northwest of Callander along the west side of route A84 at the south end of Loch Lubnaig. It lies just west of the small hamlet of Annie/Anie. It is on the site of the old St. Brides Chapel. The only remaining standing headstone is of James McKinlay who died in 1825.

MacKinlay sources say that the MacKinlays of The Annie in Strathyre (adjacent to Glen Finglas) were a cadet branch of Clan Farquharson. (William MacKinlay, former President of the United States was descended from this branch.) These MacKinlays were descended from Finlay Mor Farquharson of Braemar, perhaps by illegitimate offspring. It now seems reasonable that Finlay Mor may have had a son named Finlay Glas who was the first to settle in Glen Finglas and after whom the Glen was named - and that it was his family who were completely wiped out when their funeral procession fell through the ice on Lochan nan Corp (small lake of the corpses) on their way to St. Brides Chapel, which is the traditional MacKinlay burial ground at The Annie.
