Archaeological Notes

NJ96SW 66 91146 62461

It was reported by Mr J. Graham Callander that in 1908, he saw a stone of the grindstone type lying at the spot marked "Old Windmill" on the Ordnance Survey map, about 250 yards north-west of the farmsteading of Mains, Boyndlie, in the parish of Tyrie. The error on the map has doubtlessly arisen through the confusion of the word "whin-mill" with "wind mill" by a surveyor who was familiar with the latter only.
