The father of Mr John Middleton, the present tenant of Bridgend, and whose ancestors have lived here for some generations, removed a portion of the "Post." the ground is now cultivated , and part of the Post obliterated, so that its extent can only be partly shown by the formation of the ground.

This object is evidently the Roman camp mentioned in Statistical Account etc.-
It is believed by some Archeoelogist; who inspected it some 40 years ago, to
have been merely intended to accommodate a small garrison for the purpose
of keeping open the communications between the Camp at Peterculter on the
River Dee, & the Camp at Glenmeilan in Auchterless Parish. As I can find
no traces, beyond those inserted on the Plan, I have no doubt that such must
have been the case.
