‘A quarry set out by the late Sir William Rae Commissioner of Award for the use of the inhabitants of Strathmiglo Parish. At present it is little used owing to the depth of Slate Stones which are of inferior quality which covers the strata of Limestone about 13 or 14 feet’ (OS Name Book 29, 61). There is no indication as to the identity of the eponymous Wilkie.
