Stat: Acct [Statistical Account]
This name applies to a considerable portion of elevated moorland, which is chiefly adopted for sheep grazing, and is situated about three miles South of Peebles. Its Southern side is in some places precipitous. It appears to have been anciently called Cadhmore, which signifies in Gaelic "the great sight"; probably from its elevated situation:- on the top of it are the remains of Four British Forts.
