CLYDE AT COULTER

Clyde at Coulter
This is a view of the Coulter bridge from the railway bridge. The railway went parallel to the bridge. The line was that of Symington to Peebles via Biggar.
The bridge in the picture was built in the 19th century. In Medieval times there was a ford here and that is why the Lindsay`s constructed a motte here. Coulter Motte was damaged by Lanark County Council during road construction and had to repair it at their own expense.
Further along the river towards Cornhill House not Castle! there was in Roman times a Marching Camp which could have been used both in the 1st and 2nd Roman occupations of Scotland if the coin evidence is anything to go by.
