A cotton is a ‘territory (toun and lands) entirely set to cottars’ (Sanderson 1983, 43). One of several cotton-names in SCO, they are discussed as a group in SCO Introduction, above.

    This farm has now disappeared as a result of the adjacent bonded whisky warehouse complex built on the lands of Banbeath.
