Parkburn Farm from Montrose's Camp
Parkburn Farm from Montrose's Camp
This photograph is taken from the low wooded hill to the north east of Fyvie Castle where the entrenchments built by the Earl of Montrose's Royalist army can still be discerned.

It appears that, in 1644, Montrose took possession of Fyvie Castle, but not thinking it tenable against the superior force of the Earl of Argyle, he retired to this hill which he defended for several days, and then marched by night to Strathbogie. The hill-top area from which the image is take goes by the name of Montrose's Camp.
