Stone of Morphie
"Traditionally said to mark the grave of a son of Camus, killed in a battle between the Scots and the Danes, it was knocked down shortly before 1856. Digging prior to re-erection revealed part of a human skeleton, buried in black unctuous earth."

From the Canmore records, citing the New Statistical Account of 1845.
