County of Perth -- Parish of Redgorton

It is stated in the New Statistical Account that "In 1789 there was found on the farm of Balmblair, at a place called the Dumbies Know, by
the side of a large stone, as many of Davids groats and half groats and Edwards pennies, as amounted to three pounds."
The situation or name of this Knowe is not known in the locality, and not one person in the neighbourhood can point out where the money was found. This is also the case with respect to most of the Cairns (stated in the New Statistical Account) to be in this parish, as they have been carefully looked after by the examiners.
