of the Survey when here that I had seen at Clune in this parish some years ago 3 stone (slab) coffins disinterred from under a large cairn of stones. But I dont know if any enquiries had been made about them.
I learned today that the Dooket Hill had up to recent time been called Castle Hill and that it appears from a book entitled Memoirs of Montrose, that the Lords of Session held court in full wigs on the said Castle Hill, now called the Dooket Hill since a pigeon house was erected on it. I have not seen said memoirs but have been told that Mr Malcolm Solicitor Nairn had the book in possession. I mention these things in case it should be worthwhile to enquire about them.
