Konger's Knowe

Round Barrow(s)


There is a Congesquoy near another Bu, the Bu of Cairston/Garson, whose name is said to mean a quoy acquired by the earl. However near Gyre later in the 19th century the fields of Upper and Lower Congesquoy lie within the Commonalty. But again Johnston's 1820 map shows Congasquoy (sic) outside of this, and Kongar signifies ' the king's field '. So it comes as no surprise that the one in Stromness was also called Konisquoy i.e. Konigs Quoy. wideford Posted by wideford
