Killievair Stone
Killievair Stone
This is alleged to refer to an ancient battle between Agricola, the Roman leader, and Calgacus, leader of the Picts. The Buckler Stane lay at Langhaugh, over 1 kilometre due north of the Killievair Stone, but is no longer visible. Five kilometres due north of the Killievair Stone lie the White and Brown Caterthuns, 285m high hills with the remains of ancient forts on their tops. It is alleged that this is where Calgacus had his forts.

Thanks to local farmer Mr J.Barron, at Findowrie, for this excellent contribution of local knowledge.
