005 [Situation] About 1 Mile N.E. by N. [North East by North] from New Mains
A small arable field on the farm of Prora, in which it said that a man named Livingston had a conflict with a wild boar which infested the neighbourhood. The whole line of the Peffer including part of the lands of Fenton and Chapel, and stretching towards North Berwick Law is said to have been at one time covered with wood, the den of wild beasts, and greatly infested with wild boars, one of which is said to have been of great size, and exceedingly destructive to those who dwelt in that neighbourhood. Livingston for a promised reward attacked this beast near Luffness, and is supposed was in this field where he destroyed it. A short distance from this a Standing stone marks the place where the boar fell.
