The hills on the border are mostly covered with heath, and afford plenty of grouse and other game, as well as a supply of fuel to the neighbouring parishes, and to the town of Huntly. Agriculture is in an advanced state upon upwards of 4,300 acres under cultivation. The remaining 10300 are in pasture, moor, or moss, and wood; but there is rather a defect of the last. The Corskie slate quarries, on the property of the Duke of Richmond, are very extensive and valuable." Fullarton's Gazetteer.
