Archaeology Notes

NH92SW 1 938 239.

(Area NH 938239) The upper stone of a rotary quern was found in 1957 by Ian Walker, Dept. of Agriculture for Scotland, at Mullochard, Duthil, at a point on the right bank of the River Dulnan, when a gravel mound was being removed. The exact place in the ground from which it was dislodged could not be recorded as it was revealed by a mechanical excavator. The stone, 16" in diameter, is in the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland (NMAS). (Accession no. B.B. 128)

R W Feachem 1960.

Mr Urquhart (Mr I Urquhart, farmer, Mullochard) indicated the approximate area where the gravel mound had been, but was unable to remember its exact location. The area is now a cultivated field. Visited by OS (R L) 31 October 1966.
