The Kirkton is the second house where Andrew Bonar lived in Collace.
It is separated from the churchyard by a wall. It is also associated with visits of Robert M'Cheyne,
who often took services in Collace, and rode there on his horse.
When he came to the door on a wintry day, he said, 'I have been riding all the way to-day through the
pure white snow, and that verse has been in my mind all the time, "Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow."'
