An exchange was made between Sir William, abbot of Inchcolm, and the convent of the same place, on one side, and Robert, lord of Rosyth, on the other, namely that, since the land of Balhaulie (FIF), which is the said abbot and convent’s by ancient and peaceful possession, lies in the middle of the lands of the lord of Rosyth, and since controversy and discord could be stirred up regarding the entrance and exit to the cultivated land attached to it, by the consent of Sir Robert, bishop of Dunkeld, and friends of both parties, an agreement was made, whereby Robert gave, granted and established by this present writing in pure and perpetual alms to the said abbot and convent of Inchcolm, 7 acres of arable land in the territory of ‘Drunislauth’ (FIF), by stated bounds. Similarly, the said abbot and convent have granted to Robert and his heirs in perpetuity, all his land of Balhaulie with its liberties and easements. Both parties have subjected themselves and their goods to the authority of the lord bishop of Dunkeld, or his archdeacon or official.
