Dewars Corner Archery Butts and Amphitheatre

An interesting plaque is attached to the railings of Roslin House at Dewars Corner (the junction of Glasgow Road and Glover Street). It sets out the believed location for both the archery butts and the amphitheatre where James V watched plays in 1539. The actual site of the amphitheatre is believed to be in the area now occupied by the industrial park opposite. In 2023 the owners had the railings re-painted and the lettering was made much clearer.
