OS1/1/22/1 CRUDEN Parish of Cruden Parish of Cruden Parish of Cruden Statistical Account. Valuation Roll. Revd. Dr. [Reverend Doctor] Pratt's history of Buchan. The Earl of Erroll Collections of the Shires 031 ; 032 ; 039 ; 040 The Parish of Cruden is a very large one, and is situated about 24 miles northeast of the City of Aberdeen, and about 5 miles southwest of the Burgh of Peterhead in the Buchan district of Aberdeenshire. The most of this parish is at present under cultivation, and the moorland which stretches from the House of Auquharney in the south, to the boundary between Cruden & Peterhead in the north, is fast being reclaimed. This parish appears to be very flat when viewed from the Hill of Dudwick in the parish of Ellon, but when one gets fairly into it, they then find it to consist of a series of small hills, though of no great hight. There is very little wood in this parish, in fact the north east portion is almost without a single tree, which gives the district a very bleak & wintery appearance. There are four villages in this parish, the principal of which is Hatton, and is situated near the centre of the parish. Then there is the villages of Whinnyfold, Ward of Cruden and Buller's of Buchan, which are all fishing villages and are situated along the coast. This parish has two parochial Schools, one situated at Bog Brae, and the other which is the principal one, is near the Post Office, besides these, there is the Free Church School, situated in the village of Hatton, and the Erroll (Episcopal) Schools which are situated near St. James's Church, and several other small ones. There are three places of worship in this parish Viz. The parish Church, the Free Church and St. James's Church (Episcopal) - the parish Church is a very plain substantial edifice, it was erected in the year 1777, and is situated in a hollow near the "Bishops Bridge", at the end of the Aad Braes. The Free Church is a very plain barnlike building, having no ecclesiastical pretensions, it was erected in the year 1843 or 1844. St. James's Episcopal Church is built on a hill called the Chapel Hill, it is a very pretty building and well attended, and forms a prominent feature in the landscape, it is to be seen from almost any part of the parish, it was built in 1843, and dedicated to St. James the Less, the first Bishop of Jerusalem. There are very few mansion houses in this parish in fact the only ones worth notice, are Slains Castle the Seat of the Right Hon. [Honourable] the Earl of Errol, which is situated on the edge of the cliff, a little north of the village of Ward of Cruden, and Auquharney House, the Summer residence of Mr. Yeats, Advocate, Aberdeen, besides these there is Yonderton, Moreseat, and Aldie, but they are all farmhouse looking buildings, and can scarcely be called mansion houses. This parish is bounded on the east by the North Sea, and the cliffs along the coast present a magnificent appearance, especially when viewed from the sea. The cliffs in [Continued on page 2]

OS1/1/22/2 CRUDEN Statistical Account. Valuation Roll. Revd. Dr. [Reverend Doctor] Pratt's history of Buchan. The Earl of Erroll Collections of the Shires 031 ; 032 ; 039 ; 040 [Continued from page 1] in the south end of the parish are composed chiefly of mica slate, and in the north of Granite. About a mile north of Slains Castle is the famous 'Bullers of Buchan' with its magnificent natural arch forming the entrance to the "Pot", this place is well visited in the summer season, and is well worth a visit, especially if the visitor will hire a boat and enter the Pot, & some of the caves in the neighbourhood, the cave of Bomahoy in particular, this must be done to see the beauty of the coast. This parish presents a splendid field for the antiquarian, the principal antiquities are as follows. The remains of St Olavs Chapel on the links bordering the Bay of Cruden, on the supposed site of the battle between the Danes, under Canute, and the Scots under Malcolm II, which ended in the utter discomfiture of the former, and their final expulsion from Scotland. The Church was erected by Malcolm and it was surrounded by a graveyard, wherein were buried the Slain of both Armies. There are several graves which are pointed out to the visitor as the resting place of eminent men in the early ages, one situated a short distance westward of the remains of the above mentioned Chapel of St Olavs, is supposed to have been the burying place of the Crown Prince of Denmark of whom tradition states that he was slain in the battle of Cruden. There was a beautiful slab over this grave until about the middle of last Century. It is supposed to have been despoiled of various ornaments, and was afterwards removed to the parish Churchyard. There is also another in the northern part of the parish called the "Kings Grave". The Revd. Dr. [Reverend Doctor] Pratt says it lies east & west, measured 3 ft. [feet] 10 inches in length, 22 inches in width, and 25 inches in depth. How it got this name there is not even a single tradition to inform us. Cairns are very plentiful in this parish, in the northern parts of the parish on the tracts which are still lying waste. Small mounds or Cairns can be seen at every twenty or thirty yds. [yards]. Celts were rather plentifully distributed throughout the parish, among the principal we may mention 3 found by Mr. Hutcheon of Berry Moss, and 3 found by Mr. Johnson, Moreseat, in both cases the lots were each found in the trunks of trees, embedded in moss. 1 found on the farm of Nook, 2 found on the farm of Standing Stones & various others. In 1817 a neck chain, and Battle Axe were found in a small mound near the farm of Greenbrae, for particulars see description. In 1821 a stone coffin containing a human skull, several small bones, two urns and seven flint arrow heads, were found on the farm of Uppermill, and several years after, other graves were found near the same place. A stone coffin was also found on the High Law and another in the Silver Cairn, in the latter was an Urn containing calcined bones, There was a Druidical Circle at (Stones). There were several beacon hills with artificial mounds on them. They were the High Law, the Moat Hill, the most of the mounds are now removed. Note _ There is no portion of this parish detached, nor portion, or portions, of any other Parish within the boundary of this Parish.

OS1/1/22/3 CAMP [Continued from page 4] And trust thine elfin foe to see, In guise of thy worst enemy. That old Camp's deserted round, Sir Knight, you well might mark the mound The Pictish race, The trench, long sines in blood did trace; The moor around is brown and bare, The space within is green and fair. The spot our village children know, For there the earliest wild-flowers grow; But woe betide the wandering wight, That treads its circle in the night.

OS1/1/22/4 CAMP [Hill of Aldie] Enclose Mound Enclose Mound J. Shepherd Esq West Gask Rev [Reverend] John B Pratt M.A. [Master of Arts] 031 Extract from Pratts Buchan p. [page] 77. Near the sky of Hill of Aldie, about two miles north-west from the house, is a low sort of Mound, surrounded, with the exception of small spaces on the north and west, by a broad shallow ditch. This ditch produces coarse grass, the mound itself and the surrounding hill being covered with heath. The enclosure is elliptical, about 60 yards from north to south, and 25 from east to west. The inhabitants assert that, however much water may lie on other parts of the hill, none ever remains in the ditch. The way in which they speak of this mysterious circle tends to excite rather than to gratify curiosity. It is like the tale which so disturbed the rest of Marmion:- "At midnight dark The rampart seek whose circling crown Crests the ascent of yonder down; A southern entrance thou shalt find; There halt, and there thy bugle wind, [Continued on page 3]

OS1/1/22/6 [Page] 6 Aberdeenshire -- Parish of Cruden [Note relating to 'Dùn a Chlùmhaich'] - when the meaning of the word is not understood and cannot be traced with certainty to its original sense would it not be better to write it as near as possible to agree with the pronounciation given by the Country people? 'Dùn na Chloiche'] - These 2 words are suggested for one to be chosen nearest the sound and meaning of the word. I can get no information as to the name further than given here. [Initialled] JMcD.

OS1/1/22/8 Site of BATTLE [Aldie] Battle Field Mr. J. Shepherd Aldie Mr. J. Shepherd W. [West] Gask Mr. J. Ogston North Aldie. 031 In short, the battle-field and its neighbourhood is a spot fertile of busy memories, and of main conjectures. Who were the belligerents or who the conquerors in the deadly conflict, is now lost in the obscurity of the past - the Cairn and its surrounding tumuli are the only existing records of the event. That which to the eye of the beholder is now a scene of wide desolation or laborious culture, was once contested, inch by inch, by hostile armies; but whether Picts were here opposed to Danes, or whether the conflict was between races still more remote than either - whose implements of war were flint for arrow-heads, sharpened stones for battle-axes and wooden clubs for swords - is now a matter of vain inquiry.

OS1/1/22/18 GREEN SAND STONE FOUND HERE Green sand stone found here 031 [Continued from page 13] P. [Page] 13 little water-worn, if indeed they could be said to be so at all, and obviously not in situ. No rocks belonging to the group just named are known to exist in Buchan. Chalk Flints - These, though occurring plentifully in the parish, are not confined to it, but range on the heights through most of the adjoining parishes. The Buchan Chalk Flints, and organics contained in them, have been noticed by several writers. In this place it may suffice to notice the following particulars regarding them. "1. They occur only on the heights. "2. The are all water worn, and some of them much weathered. "3. The species of organics, which are numerous, are clearly referable to the cretaceous group. "4. The chalk flints occur often in a thick superficial layer, but oftener scattered over the surface, and appear to have connection with the varying nature of the surface, which consists chiefly of gravel from primary rocks. "5. No chalk exists in the district in situ, nor are the diluvial layers calcareous. Within these chalk flints scattered on the surface, a suspicion naturally arises that the sandstone fragments on the hill of Moorseat, already mentioned, may be more likely referable to the lower cretaceous layers, or greensand, than the oolite. All that can be at present affirmed is, that the species rather indicate the contrary; but a more extensive examination of so interesting a point is highly desirable.

There is a story told showing how this place received its name. It is said that some considerable time ago, that the Earl of Errol and the laird of Kinmundy were at feud, and that the laird of Kinmundy one night made a raid upon and set fire to part of Lord Errol's property. On this account the Earl challenged the laird, and the meeting was to take place, where the farm house now stands. The Earl was first on the ground and took a seat on a large stone to wait the arrival of his antagonist and the laird on his arrival seeing Lord Errol seated remarked "I see you have gotten a seat my lord"! and after this the stone was called the Earl's Seat; from which the farm name is corrupted. It is said in conclusion that things were amicably settled without resorting to weapons and the two parted on good terms

"About a mile and a half west from the parish church there was a druidical circle, consisting of seven or eight upright stones. These were removed by the tenant in 1831 to make room for "improvements". The farm is named "Stones" the only circumstance left to perpetuate the memory of "the Druidical Temple of Cruden". The circle was on the flat top of the eminence, about eighty or ninety yards South-east from the present farm house. On removing the stones, an incredible number of lizards (Lacerta Vulgaris) were found within the circumference of the circle". See Note 2. page 35. Second Edition

The custom of holding courts in the open air, and on elevated spots, is said to be of Teutonic origin, and probably had for its object the administration of justice in the site of all. - The artificial mound mentioned above was removed when the land was reclaimed.

Dr.[Reverend Doctor] Pratt Cruden Alexander Murray Nethermill A Byers Miller Nethermill 032 About a hundred yds [yards] westward of the remains of the Church of St. Olaus, there are a few Stones which mark the spot where tradition Says that a Danish Chieftain was buried, who fell in the Battle fought hereabout between Malcolm of Scotland and Canute the Dane. Dr. [Doctor] Pratt Says of this. " a few stones mark a grave which for centuries was distinguished by a large blue Marble Slab which, about a hundred years ago, was removed to the parish Churchyard where it still remains. It bears no inscription, but Cavities in the Surface indicate that it had originally been enriched with monumental brasses. The popular belief is, that the Crown Prince of Denmark was killed in this battle and was here buried." P. [Page] 89 Chap [Chapter] 3 The Stone was removed by order of the Danish Consul, who was ordered by his Government to inspect the grave and report on the state of its keeping. He finding that the grave was allowed to be despoiled had the Stone carried by a party of men and laid in the parish Churchyard, and the yearly grant paid by the Danish government, for the good keeping of the Grave, was withdrawn

Cruden Alexander Murray. Nethermill Keith Forbes. Chapel Hill. 032 On the links and adjoining Country, west of the Bay of Cruden, it is supposed, that the last Battle between the Danes, and Scots was fought. The battle is known sometimes by the name of the battle of Cruden and sometimes by the battle of Ardendraught, it having received that name from the lands (of Ardendraught) where the principal part of the fighting took place. "The contest is said to have extended " from the Bay of Cruden, to the den of Ardendraught in the north east corner of the parish of Ellon. To quote the Revd [Reverend] Doctor Pratt., "It was in the vicinity of this bay (Cruden) that the Danes during the reign of Malcolm II., in the beginning of the eleventh century, (note A) fought their final battle against the Scots, and were completely discomfited. The Contest is said to have extended about four miles to the interior, on the south side of the water; and along the whole range, about half a mile in breadth, relics and warlike instruments have occasionally been found. The hottest part of the engagement is supposed to have been on the level plain skirting the the bay." Dr. [Doctor] Abercromby, in his Martial Achievements of the Scots Nation, gives the following account of this Sanguinary Conflict : " Sueno was heartily vexed at the repeated losses he had sustained in Scotland; but his great spirit was not to be curbed by adversity. He once more resolved to fit out a powerful flat, and to raise a new army in to the prosecution of the Scottish war; and to show he was in earnest, he gave the Command of both to his own son Canute, that afterwards mighty King of England, Denmark Norway and part of Swedland; a King so fortunate and so great that his flatterers styled him Lord" [Continued on page 133]

This same Canute landed, at the head of his formidable army, in Buchan whither King Malcolm, to prevent the ordinary devastations comitted by the barbarous enemy, marched with all imaginable expedition, but thought not fit, with his new-raised forces, to hazard a decisive battle. He contented himself to harass the invaders by brisk and frequent Skirmishes, and to intercept the means of their subsistence, hoping thereby to fatigue and starve them into a necessity of returning to their ships. But this did not content the minds of his impetuous subjects. They were likely to mutiny against him, and swore they would fight of themselves, unless he would unless he would instantly lead them on to death or victory. Thus the King, though Contrary to his first design, was willingly Constrained to humour the ardour of his men. He sought out, and found the enemy as desirous, because of the scarcity of provisions, to fight as himself. The battle was, as the former ones, most terrible - most of the nobility and officers on both sides being killed. The Scots had the victory; but it was such as occasioned more grief than joy in the Camp. They did not pursue the flying Danes, for two reasons; the first, they Could not for lassitude and weariness, their spirits being spent in the heat of action; the second, because so few of the vanquished survived, that it was scarcely worth while to overtake the remainder. The night succeeding the battle, both parties - for they could no longer be called armies, their numbers being so vastly diminished - lay sad and melancholy at some distance from one another, and the next day's light presented them with the most dismal spectacle their eyes had ever beheld - the confused carcasses of almost all their numbers. This blunted the edge of their resentment, and their inclinations turned in an instant from war to peace. By this time many of the Danes and Norvegians had become Christians, and among these Canute himself, so that the priests and religious, whom by [Continued on page 134]

Chapel Hill. 032 [Continued from page 133] (Site of) Battle of Cruden (Continued) "by reason of their character, both nations respected, had an opportunity of mediating a a peace; which being so necessary, was concluded in the following terms :- 1st. That the Danes and Norvegians should withdraw their persons and effects from Scotland, and within a set time evacuate those places they had in Murray and Buchan. 2nd. That during the lives of both Kings, Malcolm and Sueno, neither of the nations should attempt hostility against the other; nor be assisting to such as would. 3rd. That the field of battle should be consecrated after the rites then in use, and made a cemetery or burying-place for the dead. 4th. That the Danes, as well as Scots, should be decently interred. Malcolm and Canute swore to the observation of these articles, and both performed their respective obligations. Canute, with all his Countrymen, left Scotland, and Malcolm not only caused to bury the dead bodies of the Danes with honour and decency, but also commanded a chapel to be built on the spot, which, to perpetuate the memory of the thing, he dedicated to Olaus, the tutelar Saint or patron of both Denmark and Norway, (Note B) Some vestiges of that old Chapel were to be seen in the days of Boethius; but it being in a great measure overlaid and drowned by the sands, which, on that coast, the winds frequently raise, and are blown in a tempestuous manner over houses and fields, another was erected in a more convenient place, and is still to be seen; as are also the huge and almost gigantic bones of those who fell in the battle of Croju Dane, or Crudane (for so is the village near to which it was fought called to this very day), that is, the death or Slaughter of the Danes.

[History], fol. [folio] 253. Sect. [Section. 30.) Buchanan (B VI) gives nearly the same account of the sanguinary conflict as Boethius. The Danes never afterwards visited the shores of Scotland with hostile intent. The numerous tumuli, indicating the graves of the slain, were kept inviolate till very lately, when the greater part of the consecrated field was invaded by by the plough, and the long-respected resting places of the slain were rudely disturbed. On the 28th day of Oct. [October] 1857, Major General Moore, who was on a visit at Slains Castle, superintended the opening of several graves around this chapel and within its precincts, when skulls and other human bones were found. In the course of what had been the nave of the Church, about 4 feet of sand were removed, when what appears to have been the floor was discovered. It consists of a mixture of Clay and lime of about four inches in thickness. Two feet below this were found, imbedded in Sand, a quantity of human remains, consisting of thigh, arm, and collar bones, and vertebrae, all in a more or less decayed state. Three skulls were also discovered, lying side by side, each supported by two stones about the size of a man's head. One of these skulls was remarkable for its great size and thickness, measuring about seven inches across the Crown. [Continued on page 136]

Digging down about two feet below the floor already mentioned, he came upon a second floor similar to the first; and, in the sand below, he found a skull more decayed than any of those which had formerly been discovered.

See Worsae's Danes in Scotland, p [page] 215. Note B. Olaus was King of Norway. It is said that he passed sometime in Germany, England, and Scotland, making himself acquainted with navigation and ship building. Having been brought to embrace Christianity, he became anxious for the conversion of his subjects; but finding them unwilling to receive the truth, he - forgetful of the spirit of that Christianity - had recourse, it is said, to force and violence. This led to rebellion, and his expulsion from the Kingdom. Taking refuge in Sweden, he succeeded in raising an army, and returned with the view of securing his Kingdom. The Norwegians, however, assisted by the Danes, met him on the plains of Strickle Stadt. Here an obstinate battle was fought, in which Olaus was slain. He was afterwards canonised, on account of his zeal for Christianity. The Aberdeen Breviary has a collect [Continued on page 137]

Note C. Cruden was of old called Invercruden, that is, Cruden near the mouth of a stream. The name is said by some to be derived from Croch Dain, Croja Danorum; Croja Dain or Crushain, which in different languages denote the slaughter of the Danes. Others again are of opinion that it was called Cruden or Cruthen, from its forming part of the Ancient Cruthencia or Pictish kingdom, so called from Cruthen, the first king of the Picts. The Revd [Reverend] Mr. Rust of Slains is of opinion that "Cruden is derived from Cruad, a stone, in the plural Cruadan, probably Cruaidhaichean, Stones, or the Corele Bellenden has the following remarks: "King Malcolme, havand his realm in sicker peace, thocht nathing sa gud as to keip the promes maid to Danis; and, thairfore, he biggit ane kirk at Buchquhane, dedicat in honour of Olavus, patron of Norroway and Denmark to be ane memoriall, that sindry noblis of Danis wer sumtime buryit in the said kirk.

Mr. John Alexander Mr. James Paterson. 032 Dun Buy, which has obtained an additional celebrity by being mentioned in the Antiquary, is about half a mile from the Castle, and is chiefly remarkable for a magnificent natural arch pierced through its very centre. "Dunbuy", says Dr. [Doctor] Johnson, "which in Erse is said to signify the Yellow Rock, is a double protuberance of stone, open to the main sea on one side, and parted from the land by a very narrow channel on the other. It has its name and its colour from the dung of inumerable sea-fowls, which in the spring choose this place as convenient for incubation." Extract from Dr. [Doctor] Pratts History of Buchan page 50.

In the View of the Diocese of Aberdeen, already mentioned, we have the following description of the original building: "Bowness, now Slains, a fair and very large court. The old Castle here, and a part of the court, was built under King James VI., by Francis, Earl of Erroll, on the King's demolishing the original castle of Slains (because of that Earl's being in arms against Argyle at Glenlivat); and the rest has been continued by his successors, till Charles, the last Earl, added the front, A.D. MDCCVII [1707]." Previous to the time of this Charles, Earl Gilbert, about the middle of the seventeenth century, made such additions to the original Castle, as to have acquired the credit of being its founder. - Extract from Pratts, Buchan, P. [Page] 44.45. There is a stone over the archway leading to the Stables with the following inscription on it. Built 1664 by Gilbert, XI, Earl of Erroll, Great Constable of Scotland, and rebuilt 1836 and 1837.

The chain is composed of jet and amber. The jet beads retain their original polish. The centre bead measures about four inches; the others from two and a half inches down to one. These beads were seperated from one another by bits of amber, encrusted with a brownish coat, but otherwise unchanged. The axe is of black flint, about seven inches long. They may be now seen in the Museum at Peterhead, collected by the late Adam Arbuthnot - Esq." "From the Statistical Account relating to the parish of Cruden" we extract the following account. "In the parish of Cruden, in a little hill, about four feet below its apex, a stone Crypt or Sarcophagus was discovered, containing a considerable portion of two human Skeletons; the one that of an adult, the other of a young person, perhaps of twelve or thirteen years of age; and also part of the skeleton of a dog; two clay urns; (a larger and a lesser one,) rudely ornamented with bars or hoops Scratched around the outside of them; Seven flint arrow points; two flint knives, (one of them considerably worn), a polished stone about four and one fourth inches in length, neatly drilled through its four Corners, and Slightly concave on the one side, and convex on the other. It is probable the polished stone had been applied to the centre of the bow, to secure a more accurate discharge of the arrow. A neck chain and battle axe were dug out of a tumulus near to the place in the parish of Cruden, where P. [Page] 163 [Continued on page 163]

The entrance is at the west end, under the tower, which is surmounted by a spire ninety feet high. The chancel is lighted by three narrow lancets, filled with stained glass by Wailes of New Castle. There is a handsome font of polished granite, and a Small but very good organ. The church was built by Subscription, under the liberal patronage of the late Earl and Countess of Erroll in 1843. (Dedicated to St. James the Less the first Bishop of Jerusalem.)

Cruden Mr. Murray, Nethermill Keith Forbes Chapel Hill 039 A Small hill in the Southern part of the parish, on its top is a small mound supposed to be artificial. The Revd. Dr. [Reverend Doctor] Pratt. Cruden. in his "Buchan" thus describes it :- "The High Law, about two miles South of the Moat, and near the Southern boundary of the parish, is a small hill rising to the height of about 300 feet above the level of the sea, and about a mile distant. It is rather steep on the Southern and eastern acclivities, and overlooks broad fields which lie between it and the rocky seaboard. On the top of this hill is an artificial mound raised about ten feet above the natural surface of the hill, and has probably been higher. Its diameter is about thirty feet. The circumference had been marked by a rude, low fence, or dyke of Stones part of which has been removed. The mound itself is of a conical shape, and is supposed to have been used for beacon fires. It commands a view of some of the mountains in the upper part of the Country, and in the Grampian range, as well as of the other laws and mounds in the more immediate vicinity - The Broad Law, the Kip Law, The Hawk Law, and, when they existed, the mounds on the Deery Hill, the Moat Hill of Ardiffery and the Hills of Aldie".

Dr. [Reverend Doctor] Pratt, Cruden Keith Forbes Chapel Hill Mr. Murray Nethermill 039 There was a Stone Cist found in the mound on the High Law. "On being opened "(Says Dr. [Doctor] Pratt) "under the supervision of General Moore, in 1857 a Stone Cairn was discovered two or three feet below the surface. At the depth of about nine or ten feet was a cist formed of thin flagstones, set edgewise, with a larger one on the top, Covering the whole grave. The Cist was four feet two inches long, twenty two inches wide, and two feet deep. There indications of the Cairn having been previously examined, and, as might be expected, the cist was empty. The direction of the grave was due North and South, which seems to indicate its existence anterior to the introduction of Christianity". from "Buchan" by the Revd. [Reverend] John B.

At Certain times as many as seven Springs Can be Seen bubbling at once, from which circumstance it receives the (local) name of the Seven Sisters. The Revd Dr. [Reverend Doctor] Pratt thus describes it. "Not far from these" ("The Hawklaw" and the "Battery") there is a well dedicated to St Olaus, the patron Saint of the parish. It is a Copious spring of pure water bubbling up in ever varying jets from a bottom of Sand. It was formerly of Sufficient importance to invite the pilgrimages of the devotee. And here we have Thomas the Rhymer; but, unlike his usual raticinations, his prophecy in this instance, seems to imply some peculiar immunities to the locality, with reference to the sanctity of this well:- "St Olaus's Well, low by the sea, Where pest nor plague shall ever be".

OS1/1/22/180 BARROW (The Battery) The Battery The Battery The Battery Revd. Dr. [Reverend Doctor] Pratt, Cruden John Milne Oldtown William Castles, Hay farm 040 On a Slope a Short distance north of the Hawk Law and separated from it by a small ravine, there is a long mound, Supposed to be artificial, called the Battery. The Revd Dr. [Reverend Doctor] Pratt in his notes on "Buchan" Supposes it to be a "barrow" and thus speaks of it. "Buchan is not wholly destitute of those ancient tumuli termed Barrows, that is, artificial mounds of various but specific forms, some circular, other elliptical, and others long. The long barrow has been described as "somewhat depressed in the centre, and more elevated towards one end than the other." Wilson, in his Archaeology of Scotland, Says of the long barrow, that "it may be assumed with little hesitation as one of the earliest forms of Sepulchral earthworks." It is now he adds, "comparitively rare". With reference to this subject, I may mention that there is a mound answering exactly to this description on immediately to the north of the Hawklaw of Cruden. It is known as the Battery. We can hardly take upon ourselves to say that this is positively a barrow; but that the mound has been artificially raised there cannot be a doubt. We are not aware that it has ever been examined.

OS1/1/22/210 BAY OF CRUDEN Bay of Cruden Bay of Cruden Bay of Cruden Revd [Reverend] Dr. Pratt Cruden William Crystall Lodge Mr. Smith, Fountainbleau. 040 A beautiful little bay on the east part of the parish about half a mile south of "Slains Castle" and extending Southward for about a mile and is one of the prettiest places along the Coast, being the only spot where there is any sandy beach, and appealing again to the Revd Dr. [Reverend Doctor] Pratts work we find the following accurate description of the bay and its surrounding objects. "To the north of "(the Village of)" Whinnyfold is the Bay of Cruden. The beautiful beach, which follows the sweep of the bay, extends from the Scaurs - a group of prominent rocks running out about half a mile into the sea - to the Water of Cruden; a distance of about two miles. Near the centre is the Hawklaw, a lofty headland, which commands a magnificent view of the German Ocean, extending, on the one hand to the Bay of Aberdeen, and on the other to the Buchanness lighthouse, an interval of thirty miles. Below the eye, the sweeping beach, with sands as smooth and firm as the floor of a Cathedral; on either hand extensive braes and links, exuberant with wild-flowers; on the left, in the middle distance, Slains Castle towering over the cliffs. These with its pure and exhilerating air, constitute this one of the most pleasing spots on the coast." from "Buchan" by the Revd [Reverend] John B. Pratt LLD. [Doctor of Laws] M.A. [Master of Arts] &c. - page 30 Chap. III [Chapter 3]
