LOGIE

"Miscellaneous Observations" - The abbey of Cambus Kenneth is the only place of antiquity in this parish, where King James III of Scotland was buried. Nigh to this is the Abbey Craig, of considerable height; upon the top of which is to be seen the form of a battery, sid to be erected in Oliver Cromwell's time, when he laid siege to the castle of Stirling, but without effect. There is a high conical hill in this parish, called Dummyatt, from the top of which is to be seen part of 12 counties. About half a mile from the foot of this hill to the north, is a very fine well, which issues from more than 60 springs, that rise through the sand and channel. It is called the Holy Well, and is said to have formerly been resrted to by the Roman Catholics. There are appearances of silver and copper mines in this parish. Some of them have been wrought, but with little profit to the adventurers. The only one that seemed to prove advantageous, was that of the estate of Airthrey, belonging to Mr Haldane,"
