Rillaton Mound

A legend associated with this mound was reflected by archaeological findings during excavation. A druid priest was said to haunt the mound, he would offer travellers a drink from a golden cup filled with a magical brew, which could not be drained.

One day a drunken huntsman threw the contents of the cup into the face of the spectre. A short while later the huntsman was found dead at the bottom of a ravine.

When the site was excavated a golden cup was found. The skeleton and the golden cup recovered from the mound can now be found in the British Museum.
