St Anthony's Chapel was probably built in the first half of the 15th Century, but may be older. Its origins are obscure, but it seems very likely that it was connected with the nearby Abbey of Holyrood. It was originally rectangular in shape, around 43 by 18 feet (13 by 5.5 m), with 3-foot (0.91 m) thick walls, and was built with local stone. The chapel is now a ruin: only the north wall and a fragment of west wall remain next to part of an ancillary building. (Quoted from Wikipedia)
