Note: See West Rivoch - Antiquarian memorials, about twenty years ago, were found in two places on this farm. The first was covered with a cairn of stones, which being removed, discovered to view Seven rudely formed Stone coffins, filled with Calcined human bones & sticks. The Second had been a tumulus, which, on excavation, was found to contain several urns filled also with Calcined human bones and sticks. The farmer, John Scott, who made the discoveries, pointed the spots out to me, & they are now accurately identified on the traces. John Keely 2nd Crpl [Corporal] RSM [Royal Sappers and Miners]
