This is 1 of 5 images, with title Whiteburnshank in this square
Remote cottage in the depths of Kidland Forest situated near the junction of the deeply incised valleys of East Burn and West Burn (becoming White Burn below), formerly used as an outdoor centre, currently boarded up, looking very unloved and heading into disarray. It is shown as a small farm cottage or shepherd's house on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1860, well before the forest was planted.

In Natural History Notes from Upper Coquetdale by William Thompson of Harbottle reported in History of the Berwickshire Natuaralists' Club (1887, vol.12, p.129):
"Badger (Meles Taxus). One was found sleeping at Whiteburnshank (Kidland), and killed by Murdie, the shepherd, and his dog; it was a female and weighed 19 lbs."
