Mounds beside the Spouts Burn :: Shared Description
Alongside this part of the Spouts Burn, there is a single large green mound, with a hollow that is probably a lime-kiln ruin
, and several similar but much smaller mounds; the latter are arranged in pairs, with one on each side of the burn, and they may be the remains of clamp-kilns. See Link
for an annotated satellite view centred on this area. If associated with nearby cornstone quarrying (see Link
for details), these signs of former industry probably date from the eighteenth century.
