027 High ground between the Turnpike Road and Skinner's Burn opposite "Bearhill" and within the policies of Brechin Castle. It is conclusive from the quotations given that a chapel dedicated to St. Michael stood hereabout, and it would seem the better arrangement to perpetuate the Chapel and Mount under the one name.
