William Burns was the son of the pastor at Kilsyth and was used to begin the 1839 Kilsyth Revival. He came to Breadalbane in 1840 and the revival came with him. After he left there were several large meetings held. At a few minutes' call the people left their harvesting operations at Balnaguard and crowded into the schoolhouse until it could hold no more
The school is just opposite a farm-house at the end of the village. It is beside the main road and you can see a couple of stones which was probably where the entrance was.
