In Sinclair's Stat. Acct. [Statistical Account] vol. [volume] 5. P. [Page] 132 is the following notice of this rock. "About a mile eastward from the town is a craig or rock curiously hollowed, Known by the name of the Maiden-bower Crag. It is said to have been famous in the times of Druidism; and may have received its name from being the scene of some rites practised as a test of virginity."
