039.18 "Almost at the norther extremity of the parish the Whitehill rises out of the alluvial land on the side of the river, and commands an extensive view. The remains of a camp are situated on the Southern face of this hill. There is an appearance of an old well having been sunk near the north-east angle of this Camp. The hill continues to rise at this side above the Camp, and there are some traces of either one or two more fortifications, but not so distinctly marked as to enable me to insert them in the plan." (On the ancient camps of the Upper Ward of Lanarkshire by G. V. Irving Esqr.)
"In Camps it is most abundant. Three of these quite adjoining one another are very distinctly marked at Whitehill, in the north-east extremity of Lammingtoune all of very considerable dimensions, the largest being 70 yards in length by 40 in breadth, with a ditch 5 yards in width. These are supposed to be of Roman construction." (New Stat Act [Statistical Account]
