Sc fluther

‘Boggy ground, marsh’, it is on low-lying ground between the Lady Burn and Castlefield. ‘In Cupar any hangings would normally take place at the Fluthers, and the last public hanging was held there on 5th July 1852’ (accessed February 2008). For a reference to bowls being played on Fluthers in 1743, see CUP Intro., Cupar and Justice. It is now a car-park.
