044 A hill feature situated a short distance north of Oyne, property of John Horn Esq. Pitmedden House.
"John Horn, advocate in 1608, married Ann, daughter of John Leslie of Pitcaple, and ornamented the place with wood, particularly firs, which grew very rapidly, so that he was buried in a coffin made from trees of his own planting. He also formed a great many promenades, which ascended a verdant eminence, where he had erected on the summit a small edifice containing two rooms, and called it his "Parnassus."
