Archaeology Notes

NO23SW 14 2324 3373.

There are two cairns and a circle of 7 stones on a hill called Glenny Law, Abernyte. The cairns, according to tradition, were raised in consequence of a skirmish between the Grays of Fowlis and the Boyds of Pitkindie. The circle formerly possessed more stones, three or four of them having beeen removed not long ago. (Glenny Law is situated about one mile from Stockmuir (at NO 244 327)).

NSA 1845

Glenny Law and Round Law (NO 2324 3373) are one and the same (Mr G Anderson, Newtongray, Abernyte). Round Law is a natural, turf-covered, conical hillock on which no trace of any cairns or stone circle was found.
