Full Description

NH66NE 7 679 655.

(Area: NH 680 654) 'The circular base of an ancient Pictish house', on the glebe of Resolis, was trenched over about 1834.
About 1.5' below the surface a handled stone cup was found. It was in possession of parish minister - Rev. Donald Sage - in 1836.
NSA (written by Rev D Sage - 1836) 1845.

There is no trace of a 'circular feature' in any of the fields of the Glebe, surrounding church and manse of Resolis. These fields have long been cultivated, and Rev J A Newall has never noticed any peculiarity in the ground. He has no knowledge of previous existence or present whereabouts of stone cup, although he lives in the former residence of the Rev. Donald Sage.
Visited by OS (R B) 14 January 1966.
