Law Shed (continued [continued from page 19]
"The necessary adjunct", (in reference to a castle at Balnabriech (Brechin Ph [Parish]) which the author in shewing its Gaelic derivation as probably Bal-na-breith and implying "the town of judgment or sentence") "the Law or Cairn stood on an adjoining field, called the Law Shed, where many rude stone Coffins and Urns were found on reducing the Cairn which lay nearly due south of the site of the reputed monument of Carril." Land of the Lindsays.
The personal authorities given are familiar with the account of the stone Coffins or Cists, & Urns being found, in the Law. It is still remarkable in the field where it stands, particularly from the Law standing on a slight eminence but the remains shewn are those of the Law which as before stated is still to be seen. Nothing is known of the site of the barrow or tumulus on which it is said the monument stood. - About 30 years ago there were trees on the Law Shed & a wall enclosed it.
