Dale. enters Dumfrieshire and joins the "Britton Wall" after which it runs into the Solway Frith. Mr Train of Castle Douglas (an Antiquarian of Some note) traced it through Galloway. which he Mentions that "upon some elevated spots over which it runs. remains of Watch Towers are yet visible. he also states that it is invariably 8 feet at the base. &. has a fosse at its North or inland Side." This I find to be incorrect as regards the portion of it which passes through Craignell Craigenbay etc. etc. Mr Train is also in error in Stating that it runs through the farms of Craigencallie &. Garrary as it passes some distance South of those farms. This diKe runs in an Easterly direction through the farm Tolnotry Landerghie &. Craignell till it meets the BlacK Water of Dee a little North of the Old Bridge of Dee - See for further description in Plan 23A.
