It may be assumed that Easter Pitscottie existed by 1438, since Wester Pitscottie is first mentioned in that year (RMS ii no. 239; see Ceres, above, for more details).

    An 1814 estate plan of Easter Pitscottie (RHP5308) shows field-names and the exact extent of the farm at that time. There is only one field to the south of the Pitscottie–Ceres road (NO414128). This is called Raith Park, and is discussed above under Ballachton # CER.
