Old Statistical Account
064 A dwelling house and offices, the property of Alexander MacLaren Esquire
TUMULUS [Beech Hill] 064 About 30 or 40 yards north of the dwelling house is a small green mound, the following quotation from the Old Stat. [Statistical] Account refers to this place
"The Beach Hill opposite to Coupar is evidently raised by art, though tradition is silent respecting the cause, a * roman urn was found here, and it is said that justice used to be administered here in ancient times, in the open air."
There is an old thorn tree growing on the mound, it is mentioned in the Title deeds of this place over 400 years ago, it is now partly covered with plates of zinc to preserve it from further decay.
STONE CIST AND HUMAN REMAINS FOUND [Beechhill] 064 In the field a little to the East of the mound a stone cist and human bones was found about two years ago the bones are in tolerable preservation and are to be seen at the dwelling house of Beechhill.

* This statement must of course be received with caution, but the remarkable view from the Beech Hill (and which is prominently mentioned in the Old Stat Acct [Statistical Account] of the Parish) renders it probable That this position would be occupied as some exploratory mound in connexion with the neighbouring Roman Camp (as at the Roman Camp at Keithick in Brechin Ph [Parish]) and may justify its being written in Roman character.
