The above location map is taken from an early OS
map dated 1873. Haughfoot is no longer shown, but it shows the Waverley
Railway Line (opened in 1849). Haughhead is also clearly shown.
When we compare the river bed location, on this map at or near where
the Haughfoot Lodge is shown in the two earlier maps, we might deduce
that the river had changed course slightly westwards possibly towards
Haughfoot. The other observation I make is that on the 1755 Map
the location of Haughfoot is roughly midway between the river bed
and the Turnpike Road.
If we said that the river had not moved course and
assumed that these two early maps did not accurately show that exact
course of the Galawater, then Haughfoot was possibly bang in the
middle of the railway route.
Finally, I show below an up to date Google Map of
the locality. I have added where I conjecture the Haughfoot location
