New Statistical Account
025 "Until very lately three Laws were visible in the Parish - Hilton, Windsard & Drumcothlaw. The materials of the two last (See "Law" 26-14-1) have been removed. Many Urns & some of them entire, have been dug up in the vicinity of the last, which allows a conjecture there may have been some fighting on the adjacent fields." N. Statl [New Statistical] Account.
"Drumcuthlaw" is well known. It is a high ridge along the top of which the Ph. [Parish] Road passes. It belongs to Noranside Estate. There is not any personal authority in the parish who remembers the Urns &c being found here, but the law is said by persons acquainted with its history to have been the place where such were found - No remains of an artificial hillock are to be seen on Drumcuthlaw at the present time.

Co. [County] Forfar -- Fearn Parish

"The district of Fearn so far as known
has little to boast of in the way of prehistoric traces,
though a few warlike remains & the names of places
would favour the supposition
of the parish having been the scene
of some unrecorded engagement
The discovery of Stone Coffins and Urns in
various parts, particularly at a place called Drumcuthlaw,
or the "law of the battle ridge", and the existence of large
rude stones at Haerpithaugh (i.e. "the boundary haugh of
the pit or grave) having much the appearance of bound or
march stones, would imply something of this sort."
