They no doubt harbored resentment over Scott’s support of the well-to-do farmers in the mill action, which was on-going, and in the summer of 1822 they were grieving the loss of their two-year-old son and John’s sister, Jane, both of whom had died that spring ( J. A. Henderson 480). Construction that interfered with the graveyard would have opened fresh wounds for them.

Hardly any inclosures, and every farmer, almost every cottager, keeps some sheep, they are with difficulty guarded in the winter. (OSA 14: 499–500) Referring directly to agriculture in Glenbuchat, the Kildrummy minister notes that “cattle are supported during the summer, on widely extended mountain pasturage inaccessible to the plough,” which points to a traditional reliance on low quality upland grasses to support flocks and possibly to the use of sheilings by herders (OSA 18: 412–13; Barclay 47).
