Syde (site of)
The ruins of a farmstead at this location may represent the site of the tower of Syde.
The tower belonged to the Armstrongs, one of whom, Jock o’ the Syde, is commemorated in a Border ballad.
He is weil kend, Johne of the Syde,
A greater thief did never ryde,
He never tyris,
For to brek byris,
Ower muir and myris,
Ower gude ane gude.
