The Covenanters and Peden’s Pulpit on Rubers Law

Another stone connected with the Covenanter, Alexander Peden, is ‘Peden’s Pulpit’ or ‘Peden’s Stone’ on Rubers Law, a hill in Hobkirk parish, Roxburgh. The hill lies between the villages of Denholm, Bedrule and Bonchester Bridge.

The old OS map shows a ‘Peden’s Stone’, which is probably the same as Peden’s Pulpit.

The pulpit lies on the hill above the site of Peden’s Thorn in Denholmdean.

For another site named Peden’s Pulpit, see Gameshope in Tweedsmuir parish.
