[Quotations] "Upon the top of Letham hill there are some large stones placed in a circular form, said to have been a Druidical temple." Old Stat. Acct. [Statitsical Account]
"On the top of Letham Hill, there is what is said to be the remains of a Druidical temple. To uninitiated eyes, it appears to be a few blocks of Greenstone, somewhat circularly arranged on the top of a greenstone hill where such loose fragments of the rock below are to be expected." New Stat. Acct. [Statistical Account]
