The Blackness Aisle, burial place of the Wedderburns, Barons of Kingennie and Baronets of Blackness, and now the property of the Hunters of Blackness. An inscription now obliterated gave the date of erection as 1615.
This is a large stone building, built out from the old wall of the Howff. It is now in a decayed condition. There is nothing to indicate its original state except the word Blackness, still legible. Places in the wall, where tablets must once have been inserted, are clearly visible. In A. C. Lamb's Guide to Remarkable Monuments in "The Howff"
