The views were taken in 1774. It was upon Captain Grose, while collecting the Antiquities of Scotland, that Robert Burns wrote an Address, of which the following are the opening lines:-
" Hear, Land o' Cakes, and brither Scots,
Frae Maidenkirk to Joh'ny Groat's;
If there's a hole in a' your coats,
I rede you tent it;
A ehiel's amang you taking notes,
And, faith ! he'll prent it.
