St Mary's Chapel, Rattray

Toggle location map

St Mary's Chapel stands at the south end of the Loch of Strathbeg. It is thought to have been built in the early 13th Century AD by the Comyn family as a private chapel for the nearby castle and is all that remains of the medieval burgh of Rattray.

The chapel is rectangular in plan, built of grey whinstone with red sandstone around the openings. Both gables survive to full height, with three lancet windows in the east gable and a single window opening in the west.

The chapel is thought to have gone out of use in the 16th Century, replaced by a new Parish Church in the village of Crimond to the west.
