061 [Situation] About 3¾ miles S.E. [South East] from Glencaple. The inhabitants of the district suppose this to have been constructed as a Camp during the days of the Border feuds. In shape it appears to have been rhomboidal, it has a triple entrenchment on the South side; this side appears to been prolonged to Some distance towards the North West as is evident by the existence of a small detached portion in that direction; another detached portion is visible at the same distance from the Camp, but towards the South East, there is also the track of a ditch which possibly may have extended along the Southern face of the work. Doubtless this has been a military work, and from the magnitude of the existing remains, one of importance. The South Western face appears to have been the strongest from which it may be inferred that an enemy was expected to march upon the Camp from that point.
