Culblean  Aberdeenshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Culblean like this:

Culblean, a hill range in the E of the Tullich section of Glenmuick parish, SW Aberdeenshire, 4 miles NE of Ballater. Extending about 5 miles south-by-eastward from Morven Hill to the vicinity of the Dee, it has an altitude of 1750 feet above sea-level, and at its southern end contains the curious natural excavation called the Vat. Here, on 30 Nov. 1335, the Scottish regent, Andrew Murray of Bothwell, defeated David, thirteenth Earl of Athole, who, setting his back to a rock, said it should flee as soon as he, and so fell, with many of his 3000 followers.
