William McLachlan. Westmuir of Drumfad.
Mr John Donaldson, Tenant. Kirkton
117 Mr McLachlan informs me that he found a number of stones built in the form of a coffin, the top being covered with boulders, at the time he was removing a number of cairns, for the purpose of cultivating a portion of his farm then a moor, he states that there were no less than 21 cairns in a space of about 2 acres, the largest of these (under which the coffin was found) contained upwards of 20 loads of stones, and the smaller ones from 16 to 18 loads, these cairns are also very numerous up on the moorland still in an uncultivated state, and the neighbouring farmers have removed many cairns from off their lands, about 200 yds [yards] to the east of this are the vestiges of 3 circles, they appear like an encampment, but no certain information can be obtained about these, in the vicinity of these dozens of cairns are still visible although overgrown with heather and broom.
