Quothquan Law

The photo underneath is a view of Quothquan Law, an important hill fort near the village of the same name  . The original meaning of the name Quothquan is ‘pointed hill’ , this translation comes from ‘Q’ Celtic . This variety of Celtic is the older of the two Iron Languages prevalent in Britain. The Law has not been excavated though the report in the Royal Commission Volume on Prehistoric and Roman Lanarkshire indicates that there are hut circles on the top of Quothquan Law.


It is quite likely that the Law was occupied in Neolithic Times c. 3500 B.C and that this occupation continued right through to the Celtic Iron Age and may have been longer still. However without any archaeological excavations , it is impossible to sure.
