Muirhead Mounds


A couple of mounds to the north east of Rashiefield Bridge are traditionally associated with the Covenanters. It is said that a number of Covenanters were buried here after battle. The mounds, which appear as greener knolls in an area of rougher ground, are visible from the road linking Bowfield and Hartfield.
