Mr. Grant, Merrytop.
Mr. Murray, Nethermill.
031 Mr. Grant of Merrytop says that when he was carting sand from this pit in the year 1818, he came upon a stone cist, and in removing the top stone he discovered that it contained 2 Urns, 2 Flint Knives, 7 Flint arrowheads, and the most part of two skeletons, one he thinks was that of an adult, the other that of a boy. The Ph. [Parish] Doctor took the bones away with him, and the rest of the articles were given to the Peterhead Museum. I am inclined to think that this is the one referred to in the Statistical Account.
