Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Of Carlops
Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Carlops in the Scottish Borders, Scotland. This is a small village in the Pentland Hills. The village was founded in 1784 and developed cotton weaving, coal mining and limestone mining. The name derives from Witches' Leap, Scots: Carlins Lowp, as near the south of the village there are two exposed rock faces about 20 metres in height facing each other with a similar distance between them. Folklore maintained that witches would leap from one face to the other, over the chasm, for entertainment of an evening. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
