Tour Scotland Kirkconnel Churchyard

Tour Scotland Kirkconnel Churchyard. Two gravestones, probably of seventeenth century date, can be seen in this churchyard. These traditionally mark the burials of "Fair Helen of Kirkconnel Lea" and her lover, Adam Fleming, the subjects of a traditional Scottish ballad made famous by Sir Walter Scott. The present ruined chapel and churchyard are post-Reformation, but probably stand on the site of an earlier foundation. Nearby, outside the graveyard, is a late Medieval free standing cross. Cross and church site both belong probably to the nearby deserted Medieval village of Kirkconnel. Located near Waterbeck, and three quarter miles from north east of Kirtlebridge, Dumfries and Galloway.
