- Thank you for the information. Is this close to Cloch na Hill,
as I know where this is, as I visited Chessars Croft (one of
the locations my decendants lived). I believe that Gaberts,
Gabertripes is close by.
I have just been to a family funeral, and took the opportunity
to enquire of some family members who lived in the past at
Auquhirie. The concensus of opinion was that The Gabert was the
name of the croft and Gabertstripes was the hill behind it (some
said because the fields were laid out in strips). I visited the
area last year, as my grandparents ashes were scattered up there.
There are still some remains of the house, especially the walls
which had been reinforced with concrete at some point. It really
is quite a pretty situation, with a small stream (little more than
a ditch) which presumably provided fresh water, and a few trees
surrounding the building.
