New Statistical Account
062 This name applies to the site of a large camp or fort, which is said to have been situated on the summit of a large conical hill near to the old castle of Asloune. The most competent authorities on such objects, at present residing in the locality, believe it to have been erected, either by the Danes, or Britons, (ancient), but, are in general, inclined to attribute the erection of it to the latter, on account of its circular formation, although the name "Damil" would appear to be a corruption of "Danehill". No remains of this camp are now visible, the ground on which it stood having been all cultivated many years ago.
