Oops, I was here in the winter of 2009 NT8815 : Sheepfold by the Clay Burn

Is the sheepfold that David Dippie Dixon (in Upper Coquetdale 1903) tells of?

"On a wild stormy night amongst these hills a person could easily perish within a few yards of a dwelling. Some years ago a shepherd named Rogerson having lost his way, was found perished to death in a sheep stell, close to Uswayford. Not having the least idea he was so near to a human habitation, he had sought shelter from the storm within the walls of the stell ; here he had sat down exhausted, when the fatal sleep - 'The sleep that knows no waking' - overcame him."
