Duff's Knowe



It's possibly not worth getting excited over this barely discernable site, which the RCAHMS record says was only about 40cm high and obscured by all the trees on top of it, in 1989. But it's part of the local Macbeth-related folklore so seems worth mentioning. Thomas Pennant dismissively says, "Near the great stone [the Seward Stone] is a small tumulus, called Duff's-know; where some other commander is supposed to have fallen."
From 'A Tour In Scotland and Voyage to the Hebrides, 1772'.
