Harbottle – steeped in legend and history
Harbottle village is a mile or so from Alwinton. The
ruins of a 12th century castle once owned by the Umfraville
family overlook the village. The castle played an important
part of the defences of the English border. Legend reveals
that there was once a plan to drain the Harbottle Lough,
but on hearing the following mysterious words of someone
who could not be seen – the plan was aborted!
||‘Let alone, let
Or a'll droon Harbottle
And the Peels
And the Bonny Holystone’
Holystone – Roman heritage
The ‘Five Kings’ are five stones to the
south of Holystone village, which span a line forty-six
feet in length. The Holy Well at Holystone is the site
of early Christian Baptisms and the source of Holystone's
water supply. A Celtic style cross resides in the centre
of the well and is dedicated to St. Paulinus. The 16th
century farmhouse, Woodhouse Bastle, sits menacingly
in the hillside as a reminder of the sometimes turbulent
history associated with the area.
