Curvilinear-headed stone inscribed "Erected by public subscription to mark the grave of Andrew Wilson whose name associated with the genius of Sir W Scott and the Porteous Mob has obtained a distinguished place in Scottish story. He was a native of this town and was executed at Edinburgh 1736."
W wall with stone depicting 3 tigers each with shuttle in mouth, and stretchers, to Speedie weavers, and to Robert Speedie, manufacturer, died 1854.
BOUNDARY WALLS, GATEPIERS AND GATES: coped rubble boundary walls with wide arched entrance to S (possibly carved but obscured by dense foliage), further gate to E with square-section ashlar gatepiers and stepped coping; wrought-iron gates.
The ground was a gift to the Pathhead Feuars, in 1684, from John Watson of Path House (listed separately). Also separately listed is the Feuars' Arms.
