County of Nairn -- Ph.[Parish] of Auldearn

Knocknagillan continued

"The only place in the parish that derives its name from an historical event is a farm called Knocknagillan, or the young men's hillock. Here the Cummings of Rait put to death 12 out of 13 young men of the clan MacKintosh, whom they apprehended while passing through the Parish"
Copied from New Statistical Account. The farmsteading is said to have been built on or near the hillock where this conflict took place - hence the name.
