Victorian marker stone at Carberry
Beyond the well-tended lawn and trees around Carberry Tower, the land, owned by the Buccleuch family, becomes more of a wilderness intersected by muddy paths open to walkers. This Victorian stone informs them that Queen Mary's party made use of entrenchments dug by the English army before the Battle of Pinkie Cleugh in 1547. The claim was based on a statement made by John Knox in his 'History Of The Reformation in Scotland'. However, aerial photography has revealed that the trenches are in fact the ramparts of an Iron Age hill-fort (although the English soldiery may well have used these as a defensive position).
