Noted in the OS Name Book as "...a commodious farm house with suitable offices and large farm attached. The buildings are quite new...It is supposed to have received the name from the bleak and naked appearance of the land at one time." Rutherfurd's notes a Mr William Thorburn as farmer at Coldlands in 1866. None of the original steading (as shown on the 1860 OS map) remains in place 1999.
