Roughly five feet to the north of the Damliag there is a remarkable little oratory of great antiquity, but obviously remodelled. It measures in length twenty three feet six inches and in breadth twelve feet ten inches. It had a small choir, measuring eight feet nine inches from east to west, and ten feet four inches from north to south. The thickness of its walls is two feet three inches, the thickness of the walls of nave, two feet eight inches and the height of the side walls of the nave, seven feet nine inches. The doorway was placed in the south wall, but is nearly destroyed. A quadrangular window two feet three inches by eleven inches in the west gable placed a few feet from the ground and all that gable from that window upwards are modern.
