This 12th century chapel is known locally as St Skay or St Skeoch. It was dedicated to St Skae and was thought to date to the mid-to late 12th century. It measured approximately 9m by 4.5m but the ruins of the structure were demolished and rebuilt into a private burial vault in the 19th century. Some of the stones from the chapel were re-used in the vault, including three stones with incised crosses. There is a small burial ground around the vault, including a burial with railings. A smaller, more recent burial vault is located close to the 19th century vault. A rubble-built retaining wall with a small gateway encloses the chapel site and burial ground. Warden claimed that the site of a later manse could be seen when he visited in the 1880s.
