Site of castle or old house, the place marked on Blaeu’s map of Berwickshire. Set in landscaped grounds, Bughtrig House, a three-storey classical mansion with lower wings and dating from 1785 with later work, may stand on the site of the castle.
  The property was held by the Dicksons in the 16th and 17th centuries. Robert Dickson of Bughtrig was killed at the Battle of Flodden in 1513. Their tower may have been burnt by the English in 1544. Robert Dickson of Bughtrig is on record in the 1640s, and then he or another Robert in 1661. The property later passed to the May family, and is now held by the Ramsays. The house is still occupied.
  There is a fine formal garden with many herbaceous plants, roses, shrubs, annuals fruit, vegetables and a tree nursery.
