017.03 A name given to a circular hillock on the farm, and a little to the South of Farrochie farm steading. This name originated after the finding of the Cist, which proffessor Stuart considered to contain the remains of King Malcolm I. The hillock is now enclosed and planted and the name popularly known.
Mr Stratton the present tenant of the farm of Farrochie states that he has been informed that about seventy years ago the place now known as "Malcolm's Mount" was covered with a very large Cairn of Stones, built up round the base about two feet high, and heaped to the top with loose stones thus [sketch inserted]. About that time these stones were removed for building purposes, and at the base of this Cairn or Tumulus there were found a large number of dried clay Urns. The person who found the Urns was named David Campbell. The above information was communicated to Mr David Stratton by the late Mrs Carnegie who resided as servant on the Farm of Farrochie when the Urns were found. -- [signed] B. Render Corpl. R.E.
