Archaeology Notes

NT14SE 23 187 405.

(NT 187 405) Armstrong refers to a tradition that Sir Thomas Randolph (afterwards Earl of Moray), nephew of King Robert I built the church of Lyne, and had a house on the site of Lyne camp (NT14SE 4), the remains of which are called "Randal or Randolph's Walls." There are no traces of these remains now, and there is no evidence that Randolph ever held any lands in the parish.

J W Buchan and H Paton 1927

No trace of the house was found; no further information.

Visited by OS (DWR) 24 May 1971
