Archaeology Notes

NS37NE 35 3905 7790

(NS 3905 7790) Tomb (NAT)

OS 1:1250 map, 1963.

This enclosed burial ground was surveyed prior to redevelopment. Extreme root disturbance and vandalism had slighted sandstone rubble walls which were originally 0.6m thick and 1.4m high with fine red sanstone copings. Anopening in the N side gave access to an area 5.2m by 5.2m which had contained a single chest tomb. The tomb had been heavily vandalized, the top slab lying to the S, and the demolished sides to the N. The much eroded inscription records the burial of George Scott on his family's lands in 1767.

Strathclyde Regional Council 1991.
