CAIRN [Chapelton] Cairn
Alexander Blair Lochly
J. Muir Barone
204.10 A small mound consisting chiefly of a number of loose stones grown over with grass. Mr Blair of Lochly says that it was much more entire in his younger days when he was farmer of chapelton, on which farm it is situated. A great many stones were removed from it for the construction of the weir at the church, and in the removing of them an Ancient hand mill or quern and pieces of cross were found also somearrow heads, he also says that it was handed down by tradition as being a fort or watch tower & that a battle had been fought here. This tradition I can get no one to corroborate Mr Muir, from its low possition, believes it to be one of the ancient Cairns tumuli, From its appearance I would say it is one of the old Cairn Hill forts are invariably on commanding possitions, and not in hollows as in the case with this.
