090 "On the lands of Monaltry, on the north bank of the River Dee, in a narrow pass, where there is not above 60 yards of level ground from the river to the foot of a steep, rocky hill, stands a cairn Known by the name of Carn na Cuimhne, or the 'Cairn of Remembrance'. ** The tradition of the country is, that, many ages ago, the country being in danger, the Highland chiefs raised their men, and marching through the pass, caused each man to lay down stone in this place. When they returned the stones were numbered; by which simple means it was Known how many men were brought into the field and what number had been lost in action. Carn na Cuimhne is the the watchword of the country." Fullarton's Gazetteer, Vol. [Volume] 1, page 163. The cairn is surmounted by a flagstaff.
