The farm lies on the south side of the low-lying (30m) land formerly called *Bathbog (Bothebog 1589 RMS v no. 1675, Bothboig 1609 RMS vii no. 9), through which flows the Bluther Burn. Although this area is now drained, the field there is still known as ‘The Bog’. On the rising land immediately north of this boggy area is Bath and Bath Hill.
