Ardgilzean is the name of a farm 3½ miles due west of Elgin, Morayshire. In Macbeth, he says: “We shall hunt the woods of Findrassie and Ardgilzean, and see what you Orkneymen can do lacking a hatchet …!” Spynie Parish Church (IV30 6XI), which was built in 1735, is situated between Findrassie and Argilzean. In Perth & Kinross, due north of Scone Palace, there is a mound (marked as a cairn on the OS map south west of Ardgilzean Cottage), a Roman enclosure and a ring-ditch all listed as ancient monuments.
