Moorland near the Wood of Dervaird
Moorland near the Wood of Dervaird
The low hill covered in forestry, with the prominent firebreak notching the skyline, is called Gretna on the map. Unusually for this area, where nearly all the old place names have gaelic origins, the name is derived from old English (groetenhow - meaning a gravelly hill).
