031 A small eminence on the farm of Purgavie, in which were some stone Coffins and Urns found by the late Mr. Fenton, father to the present tenant of Purgavie. "About ¼ mile N.N.E. [North North East] of the Church there is an artificial eminence whose summit commands an extensive prospect. On this spot a jibbet was erected for the unfortunate persons whom the servile court of a despotic baron condemned to death. Vestiges of the Hangmans habitation appear at the foot of the tumulus (cannot now be traced) and the name of a neighbouring plot of land perpetuates the memory of this infamous practice" Old. Stat. Acct. [Statistical Account]
