Abstract


The Old Statistical Account of Kenmore, published in 1796 refers to a number of wells or tiobairts thought to have healing properties. Five were identified by the author. A stone circle on Remony Hill has six stones remaining though originally there were probably nine. Excavation in the centre of the circle revealed a deposit of cremated human bone and charcoal.
