There is one Parish School in Bentpath. The principal mansion is Westerhall. Numerous Circular enclosures occur throughout this Parish of which the New Statistical Account says "Are Supposed by Some Antiquaries to be the remains of Pictish Encampments; while others Are of opinion, that they were merely places of Strength into which the people Collected their Cattle, for Security from English borderers.-There is also a third Conjecture, that they were for the purpose of protecting the Cattle during the night, from the ravages of wild beasts when the Country was covered with Wood.- "
