Note o' the Gate

A pass in the Wauchope Forest of the S Scottish Borders, Note o' the Gate lies on the B6357 road, 6 miles (10 km) south of Bonchester Bridge. Reaching a height of 370m (1213 feet), it separates the headwaters of the Rule Water, which drains to the north, from the headwaters of the Liddel Water, that flows to the southwest. The unusual name may have come about through a misunderstanding by Prince Charles Edward Stuart (1720-88), who passed this way en route to England with his army in 1745. Today, there is a waymarked walking trail through the forest here, with a viewpoint, car park and picnic spot nearby.
