098 [Situation] About 6 chains S.W. [South West] of Inchyra House.
A Small Conical Knowe - evidently a Tumulus - in the grounds of Inchyra House and a short distance West from the Mansion House. The Gardener, James Powrie, informs me that he has been on the Estate, as Gardener for the last 42 years and that about 30 years ago, when trimming and reducing this Knowe, aided by several Workmen, preparing it for the growth of evergreens &c he removed several cartloads of Stones, Several Urns, and a quantity of Calcined bones, which leaves no doubt whatever of its being a Tumulus.
