Statistical Account
031.07 A small elliptical hill, one of a series of fortified eminences said to have formerly existed in this locality. on the summit of this hill are three very plainly marked platforms with steep slopes, forming a semi ellipsis, and evidently artificial. but there are no existing remains to indicate that a Castle or any other building has stood here. Stone Coffins, in the Statistical Account of the parish, are said to have been found here, but no information can be obtained to confirm this statement, and from the appearance of the hill it is very doubtful if any excavation sufficiently deep for the discovery of such has been made on it since the fortifications were constructed.
