Walton # CLT gave its name to Walton Hill, the relief feature, which in turn gave its name to this farm which sits on the southern slope of the hill. Ainslie/Fife (1775) shows Hill Head at or near this site. Though it is not near the top of Walton Hill (since it is only 135m up a hill whose height is 188 m), it is near the highest point or ‘head’ of the road which runs from Cults kirk to Chance Inn CER.

    An apparently Pictish symbol stone, ‘Class I’, has been found at this site. However, some doubt has been expressed as to its authenticity (NMRS NO30NE 1). If it is genuine, however, its position close to where a route-way crosses a parish boundary, may be significant, as may be its proximity to the place called Fetters # CER, TVX (q.v.) now called North Scotstarvit.
