[Note] - " Near Easterplace of Hartree is a small Know or tumulus visibly a human erection and probably Danish. Seems to have been either a burial mount or an object of direction through this marshy vale as there are similar Stations at Biggar and Wolf-Clyde at equal distances". - Armstrong's Companion to his map.
