Maison Dieu Chapel

All that remains of a mediaeval hospital and almshouse, the Maison Dieu Chapel lies on Maisondieu Lane in central Brechin. Founded between 1261 and 1267 by William de Brechin, part of the south wall and a fragment of the east wall of the hospital's chapel still stand showing examples of finely detailed mouldings around the doorways and windows. A piscina can be seen in the south wall. The hospital seems to have still been operational beyond the Reformation, perhaps into the 17th century.

Today, the chapel is maintained by Historic Environment Scotland.
