Archaeology Notes

NS75SW 20 72 52

'The Castle of Eddlewood was situated on the Meikle Burn, short distance below the confluence of Blackbog and Simsonland burns, and within the wall which encloses the High Parks of Hamilton. Its site is marked by a mound of rubbish and the fragment of a wall. It was probably dismantled ... by the troops of the Regent Murray, after the Battle of Langside, in 1568.' (Account written 1874.)

H, A {1889}
