encampments in this, than in any other parish in the north;
from tradition, and the general's tent, being circular, they are
supposed to have been formed by the Danes when they invaded
Scotland. There are likewise a great many Tumuli or Cairns; ------- shewn on tracings
the largest are formed of stones of various dimentions, and the
lesser of earth and Stones thrown promiscuously together.
In removing the stones of some of these cairns, Stone coffins were ------- shewn on tracings
found, formed by a large and two small slabs of unkewn freestone,
containing ashes, and blades of offensive weapons, almost
totally consumed by rust.

evidently appears to have a place of considerable strength. All ------- no ditch visible at present

more modern, have been laid on wooden joists, part of which are
still to be seen on the walls
