Newton
(Map From Ordnance Survey Maps - 25 inch 1st edition, Scotland, 1855-1882)

The newton is a farm steading that used to straddle the road between Eastburn and Kirkton.
The original Newton Croft can be seen by clicking this link.
Since then the main farm house has been separated from the steading and enlarged and modernised but still called Newton .

The steading has been converted into a separate cottage called Balindore.

Another steading and bothy (at the Y juction on the road) has been converted into a cottage on the south side of the road from Eastburn which has not been built at the time of this map.

From web site of Jim Gauld
Position: Soil Survey of Scotland 1967 to 2005, latterly as Head of Soil Survey and Land Evaluation within Macaulay Research and Consultancy Services; currently Treasurer to International Union of Soil Sciences.

My initial studies in soil science commenced as an undergraduate in the Department of Soil Science at Aberdeen University in 1963. Prior to that I had spent many happy vacations on Newton Farm in Glenbuchat(40 miles due west of Aberdeen) and one summer in 1960(or thereabouts!!!) had been sent by the local farmer to investigate the activities of two persons digging soil pits and recording vegetation on Tom na Gabhar hill. It transpired they were Eric Birse and colleague from the Macaulay Institute. I reported back that their activities appeared harmless but fascinating. perhaps the seeds had been sown for my future career.
