A standing stone and burial mound in the front garden of the lodge cottage of Dirnanean called the Giant’s Grave (or Ardle’s Grave) is said to be the last resting place of Prince Ardle (or Ard-Fhuill), who was believed to have been a Caledonian of noble blood, slain fighting off a Danish invasion. This is one theory behind how Strathardle got it’s name: the strath (broad mountain valley) of Ard-Fhuill, making Strath Ard-Fhuill, and then Strathardle.
