Ring Cairn


"Ladies from the nearby town of Turriff, in centuries gone by, are supposed to have come to the woods at Delgaty. There they would find lumps of yellowish sandstone which they then shaped into small blocks similar to soap. This they then used, on returning to their homes, with water to clean their kitchen utensils and tables. This practise only stopped in the late 1800's, when the real thing became more available."

Mrs. E. Shand, Woodside Of Delgaty.
