Boundary Stone, Mournipea

MVC 024F

At various stages in the history of Auchtermuchty the Town Council sold off bits of common land to raise money. As a result the boundaries of the burgh kept shrinking. The boundary marker shown below indicates where the boundary lay in 1797.


MVC 023F

Mourmipea is the road which leads out of Auchtermuchty towards Pitmedden Forest and was at one time the main road to Perth.

The picture above shows part of Mournipea as it is today. The boundary stone forms part of the wall or "dyke" and lies at the base of the tree in the mid-foreground.
