[Image 3]='James Cross marked here is called St james Cross by Dr Rankin who attributes it to an ancient cross such as would be found scattered around the country in the days of Catholicism. However at his time of writing in 1872, he states that there are no relics of such crosses in existence. \nThe name, and also  possibly High Cross, is historical and the origin can only be guessed. The location was opposite  end of the road leading to the present Gowanside which on this map seems to be called Langside? The Roman Road is also marked clearly running up Windyhall Hill. \n\nIs this what is now called Kilncadzow Law? It passes through Coldstream, Zuildshields and down past Belstane and away towards Glasgow.';
