quantity of the tumulus was removed to form a new line of road made
at the expence of Rigby Wason Esq. on its being opened up four places
of sepulture were discovered (three of which remain) of extraordinary dimensions
the principal one is formed of immense blocks of stone […] within which
were found human bones which denoted the mighty dead to have been
a person of gigantic stature, these relics are now in the possession
of Rigby Wason Esquire. Corwar House- Ayrshire
