Several stone coffins enclosing human bones have been found here by Mr Dewar and the farmer, Mr Laing. Nothing further can be obtained.

Additional Note, NOT crossed through:
After much research and enquiry no satisfactory information could be obtained concerning a site of Battle at this place. Therefore any information concerning it cannot be shown on plan.
