Full Description

The Priest's Sepulchre. The OSA (1791) states 'On the north side of the river Skiack, and nearly opposite the village of Drummond, a grave of an oblong form lined with stone in the same manner as those described above (short cists), it is called the "Priest's Sepulchre", and is 7ft long, 3ft broad and 3.5ft deep.'
This sounds like a denuded rectangular chamber. This might be the site seen by Pococke in 1760 lying between Foulis Castle and the Allt Graad...'a cairn with two stones set up before it; in a cell with five stones'... in which bones were found.
OSA 1791; R Pococke 1887; A S Henshall 1963.
