Notes

It is on the summit of a hill which lies on the northern boundary of Coldingham, where it marches with Cockburnspath parish. From the OS Name Book survey: 'This is said to have been a large tumulus composed of earth and stones, but why it got this name cannot now be ascertained. There are no remains of it now to be seen. The site only is visible on the ground.' (OS1/5/9/90)
