There must have been a lot of stones at Davidston to have a big machine like that Eric!! Comment left on 09 June 2005 at 21:13 by HAZEL PENDLE (NEE MACLEAN)
Seen a similar machine for the same reason (tatty growing) in Herefordshire, they must be common place then. Fields this way grow "spuds" seed probably comes from Scotch "tatty" fields. Comment left on 24 March 2008 at 23:34 by Brian Knibbs, Oxfordshire.
