The old farmhouse at Trows
The old farmhouse at Trows
There is said to have been a building on this site since 1197. The old farmhouse is much more recent and remains unoccupied since the move into the new two storey building behind the photographer NT8512 : Ford above Trows

David Dippie Dixon in Upper Coquetdale (1903) quotes an old fishing song:
"Oh ! come, we"ll gae up by the Trows
Where the burnie rins wimplin' an' clear,
Where the bracken an' wild heather grows,
An' the wild-rose is sweet on the briar."

I must return when the wild rose is sweet on the briar as today's a bit cold.
