"About 5 miles in length, and at a medium, 2 in breadth. The general appearance is flat, especially to the South and East; but towards the North it is very hilly, and covered with heath. In this part is situated the hill of Caterthun, noted for the foritification on its summit. The arable soil is a sandy loam, in some places intermixed with gravel, and tolerably fertile. Although there are no rivers of any great size, there are numerous streams, sufficient to drive several mills."
