013 The remains of what is said to have been a Roman Camp. Placed on the top of a hill rising South of Cardrona House and commanding a fine view of the Valley of the Tweed. There are several places in Peebles-shire of a similar appearance and Carlisle, in his Topl [Topographical] Description, thinks they may have been only Chesters or Cattle Keeps. Chalmers in his Caledonia holds them to be British forts and, in a note, says that Gordon in his Itinerary refutes the notion of these and other British forts, in that part of the country, being Roman; because they are of a round or oval form, and not rectangular; and have not the elegancy of workmanship which characterize the Roman labours.
