BL Baker's Hole

A disused lime quarry is at the site locally known as the Baker’s Hole, which lies below the road between Baldernock House and North Bardowie Farm. There is a lovely ruined cottage in the field. The material from the quarry was brought out by surface excavations called “creeping heughs”. A road would be put in and the coal or lime hauled on to a sledge, and carried down to the railway at Bardowie in trucks.
