Archaeology Notes

NT26NW 6 c. 211 695

The site of an early Colinton church has been concluded to lie in a field E of Hailes House. (NT 211 695) where human bones were dug up in the 18th c when digging the foundations of a pigeon house.

W Lockhart 1883

St Cuthberts' Church and parish of Halis or Hailes, was founded c.1095 by Ethelred, Earl of Fife. It belonged to Dunfermline Abbey. A church dedicated by David de Bernham in 1248 was probably destroyed during the English invasion of 1544-5 (see also NT26NW 2).
