Stotfield

   STOTFIELD, a village, in the parish of Drainie, county of Elgin, 6 miles (N.) from Elgin; containing 159 inhabitants. This is a small village, situated on the coast of the Moray Frith, a little to the west of Lossiemouth, and is chiefly inhabited by fishermen, who generally pursue their avocation in company with their neighbours residing at the latter place. In the Coulard hill, which projects into the Frith, are appearances of lead; but no sufficient vein of ore to encourage the experiment of working it, has yet been discovered.
