The Memoirs of the Geological survey of Scotland Vol XVII Lead.... 1921 page 107 says it dates from 1770 and was to the east of the village but suggests little or nothing was visible in 1921. I could find no further information on it, please post any further information so I can give a reliable location. Many thanks. Jeremy Landless IP: 86.140.216.47
