"The only ruins of any note are the Castles of Pitsligo and Pitulie both situated on the property of Sir John S Forbes, and overlooking the Sea. the former had evidently been a strongly built Castle, the walls being from six to seven feet thick, and probably reared nearly 3 centuries ago."

It is now flaged over & feeds a Well near the pond. Supposed to have derived its name from the Nine Muses. It supplied the Castle of Pitsligo with water and now supplies the town of Rosehearty. The following regarding it is extracted from Pratts Buchan; "Patrick Cook tells us that a little to the south of the Castle is a Well of extraordinary fine water and one of the largest Springs that can be seen. It is called the Nine Maidens Well and probably takes its name from the Nine Muses. Tradition however gives the honor of its dedication to Maidens nearer home. It is said that they were the daughters of St. Donevald"

OS1/1/74/19 MORAY FIRTH Moray Frith Moray Frith Moray Frith Moray Frith Moray Frith Moray Firth New Statistical Account Fullarton's Gazetteer Johnston's County Map Black's Pocket Map Johnston's Royal Atlas Agreeably to O.M.O [Ordnance Mapping Office] Remark 002 A Gulf in the extreme north east of Scotland, a Sea rather than a bay or an estuary; the largest projection, and at the same time one of the most regular, which the ocean makes into the Scottish coasts. Loosily defined, but with reference chiefly to its interior waters, it is the AEstuarium Vararis of ancient geographers. Its limits, as assigned by the modern hydrograhers of the country, are somewhat various, and not very distinctly understood; but on the whole, they distribute into two easily ascertained parts, an exterior and an interior. The exterior frith comprehends all the open Sea Southwest of a line between Duncansby-head in Caithness-shire and Kinnaird's-head in Aberdeenshire, onward to the entrance of the inner frith between Tarbetness in Ross-shire and Burgh-head in Morayshire. It blends with the German Ocean on the North-east, and along the Artificial line of connexion with it, measures nearly 80 miles; it has the Counties of Caithness, Ross, and Cromarty on the west, and measures on that side about 70 miles, and it has Morayshire and Aberdeenshire on the South and measures along that Coast about 57 miles. * * * The interior Moray frith, where it opens from the exterior between Tarbetness and Burghhead is about 16 miles wide. It then projects south-westward to Arderseir or Fort George, 24 miles along the Coast of Ross and Cromarty, and 22 miles along that of Moray, Nairn and Inverness. Fifteen miles South west of Tarbetness, between the north and the South Sectors of Cromarty, which rise like the Sides of a huge gateway to admit its ingress, it projects the Cromarty frith between Ross and Cromarty. From its entrance to Arderseir, it gradually contracts, till, over a distance of two miles, it is only from 1 to 1½ miles broad."* * * Fullarton's Gazetteer of Scotland

OS1/1/74/26 CHURCH Church 002 Continued [from page 25] "sometimes called the Visible Kirk as well as Cants Kirk" "New Stat [Statistical] Account" "About ¾ of a mile south west of the Castle of Pitsligo and on the southern slope of the hill is the Parish Church. It stands almost in the Centre of the Parish at the intersection of the Strichen and old Banff roads. The land north of the Church slopes to the sea in a fall of about 300 feet from which circumstance the church is seen at a great distance and hence is sometimes called "The Visible Kirk". The Church of Pitsligo is of very curious architecture. The Belfry which is of beautifully carved stone and very striking in appearance seems to be a mixture of the Italian and the Dutch. This rare piece of stone Carving is said to have been brought from Holland; and altho the Belfry was not erected till 1635 the materials must have been in a state of early preparation as it bears the same date as that of the oldest portion of the edifice 1692."

Walls Cragiefold 002 Continued from page 28 *"On the side of the high road, from Fraserburgh to Banff, are some Cairns or Tumuli, about 60 feet in circumference at the base, composed of round stones, piled up in a conical shape to the height of 30 feet. There are Several Similar Cairns in the neighbouring parishes, and they are evidently monumental repositories of the dead. On opening one of them some years ago, large flagstones were found placed in the ground in the form of a Chest or Coffin, and containing ashes of burnt bones. Some arrowheads of flint were also found, but no weapons of metal of any kind, whence it may be conjectured that they are of great antiquity. Tradition says that they are the burying places of hostile invaders from Denmark or Norway, who were defeated in that neighbourhood, and seem to have been pursued with Slaughter a great way along the Coast, where Several Such Tumuli are still to be seen."
