"Somewhat more than half a mile
northward from Terrace Hill, there is
a Smaller mount Called the Moot hil
which has several tiers of terraces on
it; and which from its name appears
to have been appropriated, in more modern
times, for the Administration of Justice
to a rustic people." -- Chalmer's "Caledonia" Page 916
