NS66SW 28 633 616.

A small mound at Hamilton Farm (NS 633 616) was levelled about 25 years ago (1768). In it was found a "stone coffin" containing human bones (Ure 1793). No trace of a mound or tumulus is to be seen on this farm, nor do the oldest inhabitants know anything about it (Ordnance Survey Name Book [ONB] 1858).

Field investigation produced no further information (but see NS66SW 12).

D Ure 1793; Name Book 1858; Visited by OS (JLD) 31 March 1954.

The RCAHMS consider that this barrow and that referred to on NS66SW 12 are one and the same.

RCAHMS 1978.
