      Written in Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer published in 1883 :

      Drumsagard or Drumsharg , an ancient Barony in Cambuslang Parish
      Lanarkshire . Comprising nearly two thirds of the Parish ot belonged successively to
      the Oliphants , Murrays , Douglasses and Hamiltons , and changed its name
      in the 17th century to Cambyuslang . Its staely castle , crowning a round
      flat - topped mound , 20 feet high , 1 and 3/4 miles ESE of Cambuslng church
      , has left scarcely a vestige .

      Interesting reference to Perthshire Jacobite families - the Oliphants of
      Gask and the Murrays .
