Burn Divot
Burn Divot
"Northwards is a solitary house called Burn Divot which was once the resort of smugglers and sheep stealers. Lights. as the shepherds believe are still to be seen at night flickering about the windows, the spirits of those who have been murdered in the house." I entered this quote in my walking diary 20 years ago and it was taken from Hadrian's Wall in the days of the Romans by Frank Graham.
Keys to the Past Web Site: The remains of an 18th century drover's house and sheepfold stand on Burn Divot. The house is roofless but has the date 1736 inscribed on the door lintel. The walls of the sheep fold stand 1.5m high and surround a U-shaped enclosure with the house in the centre.
