001.04 This name applies to a large upright Stone about 6 feet high standing a short distance north from Gourock Castle, "At the western extremity of the village on the height above the Point of Kempock and not far from the shore, stands a rude Memorial Stone, obviously of great antiquity. It is highly probable this was raised in remembrance of some battle fought here at a very early period, most likely beyond the time to which the authentic histories, of this Country reach. The name which the point of land still retains confirms this supposition the word Kemp under varieties in spelling signifying a Battle, in all the northern languages which are of Gothic derivation, From "Swans Views of the Clyde"
