from 'The Stand':
'The Stand' as our small village is known, comprises only fourteen houses on either side of the main road - the A73. There are divided ideas of its origins but we prefer either of the two:
being a resting place or 'stand', between two Roman Fortresses, in this
case Castlecary about 6 miles north and Bothwell, 5 miles south.
