NARRATIVE ON PRINT - In an age more primitive in its manners and customs than the present, it was a custom of the Incorporated Trades of Arbroath to assemble on Boulzie Hill, immediately after the Michaelmas elections, to throw apples over it, scattering them among the children.

Close to the road at the foot of Boulzie Hill is the old house of Newgate. Newgate was described by John Ochterlony, of Guynd, circa 1685, as 'a very good house and pleasant place'. Surrounded as it was at that time, and for long afterwards, by gardens and corn-fields, the description must have been accurate.
