Cummin's Camp
[Continued from p. 24] Description Continued
"They all lie in the vicinity of the Roman Iter from their Camp at Devenham (Norman dikes in Peterculter) to that ad Ituriam (Glemnailen in Forgue) towards the Catha alata on the Moray Frith - It is not probable then that as these forts flank on either side the line of the Roman progress Northwards, they were erected by the then inhabitants of the Country (the Faixali) as places of refuge for themselves and their families, from which Sallying forth they might engage in a Guerilla warfare with their haughty invaders.
The tradition which gives the building of this Camp to the Cummings is evidently fabulous for to it their age affords nil vel simile aut secundum. That it was even occupied by them previous to their battle with Bruce, the accounts of that battle whether by Hector Boece or by Barbour seem to render very doubtful, Barbour's account of the battle, which is the most authentic is here subjoined.
