The Gallows tree, known as the Dule Tree, at Leith Hall
The Dule Tree in the grounds of Leith Hall is an ancient sycamore sitting on a prominent mound and was once used as a gallows tree for those convicted under "Baron's Law". Dule is a Gaelic word meaning "grief" and suggests that the site was once used as a place to mourn the dead of the clan.
