Primary tabs

"ARDCLACH, a highland parish in Nairnshire. It is bounded by Auldearn, Nairn, Cawdor, Moy, Duthil, and Edinkelly parishes; and is about 10 or 12 miles long, and between 7 and 8 broad ... The Findhorn river traverses the parish, and is here rapid, and frequently impassable, excepting at the bridges ... About a mile below Dulsie, a beautiful sequestered holm greets the traveller, encircled with terraced banks and birchen bowers; and in the centre of which rises a small cairn, with an ancient sculptured tablet, about eight feet high, and half as broad, standing at one end of it, and having a rude cross and many Runic knots still discernible on its surface. Tradition calls it the stone of memorial of a Celtic princess, who perished in the adjoining river, while attempting to ford it on horseback with her lover, a Dane ... Population in 1831, 1,270; in 1861, 1,330."

From the Imperial Gazetteer of Scotland, edited by John Marius Wilson, 1868.
