Site of Hill of Garshake Farm :: Shared Description

"Hill of Garshake" (simply called "Hill" where context prevented ambiguity) is mentioned in various old records. It appears to be the same place as the "Upper Garshake" shown on Roy's Military Survey of Scotland (1740s-50s); it was abandoned before the first OS maps of the area were made, and is not named on OS maps of any period. Its ruin is shown but not named on the first-edition map (surveyed in 1860), and on subsequent maps up until c.1914. Thereafter, its ruins had become too faint for them to be included on maps. See Link for further discussion, and for its position in relation to an ancient track.
