130.15 -- Parish of Kilmartin -- Argyllshire

*"Tradition relates that a severe engagement took place in ancient times between the Danes under
Olave or Olaus, the son of their Monarch. And the natives headed by their King in the Valley
of Barbreck. The battle began it is said on a spot called Drimree. In the first encounter the
natives were obliged to give way and retreat up the valley. Opportunely receiving reinforcement
they rallied at a place named Sluggan. And renewed the Action with such vigour that the foreigners
in their turn compelled to give ground. The Danes having in some measure recovered themselves made
an unsuccessful stand where they first joined battle."
