NT33SW 17 3144 3105.

(Area centred NT 3127 3111) Three-quarters of a mile S of Newhall farm-steading, the glen gets so contracted that the course of the burn is a mere slash cut through the rock. On the left bank rises a pointed knoll with the stream curving round its base. A bridge here bears the name of the Peel Brig, and the peel whence it took its name was built on the knoll, but now not a stone of the building remains in its place.

J Wilson 1889-94

'Coudpil' is noted on Kirkhouse Burn by Pennecuik.

A Pennecuik 1815

No trace of the site of this tower was found in the area of the bridge at NT 3144 3105. The likeliest spot is on the flattish top of the steep-sided natural spur between the Curly Cleuch and the Newhall Burn at NT 3151 3112. The local name for the bridge is Cowpeel Bridge.

Visited by OS (WDJ) 7 March 1962.
