"There is a collection of Ancient tumuli on the high lands
of Sommer (Cameron ?) on the edge of the moor, which
has of late years been planted with birch and Scotch
firs; the graves of which there may be from twenty to
twenty-five, within an oblong of 200 feet by 60, are of
the usual description, formed by rude and undressed
stones, The covers have been mostly removed or destroyed,
Some forty or forty-five years ago [from 1840], an investigation
of these having been made, bones and stone arrow-heads were
discovered in them,"
