044 "Four hundred yards northeast
in the line of the church road, is part of
an ancient cairn called (Drums Cairn)
said to mark the spot where Irvine of Drum
was Slain, while pursuing Donald Lord of the
Isles after the battle of Harlaw 1411.
This cairn was opened and partly removed eight
years ago, on the road being widened at the place; but nothing was found confirmatory of
the above tradition, and though a field in the
near vicinity is named Drum's Fauld it may
have acquired that name from its round
and convex form, various other places of the like
appearance being also called Drums"
