URNS &C FOUND HERE [Cairn Duff] 013 "About thirty years ago, while Mr. Dean of Peacockbank was sorting out some trees in a small plantation, on Cairnduff Brae, on his property, he discovered three urns containing human bones. The urns were covered by a great quantity of Stones, forming , it is conjectured, one of those Cairns, in which the Ancient inhabitants of this Country buried their dead."
