(NT 8279 5436) Kelloe Bastle: A square of cottages, built on the site of an old bastle or keep, from which it derives its name. Similarly, Kelloe Dovecot, a row of cottages at NT 8277 5330, derives its name from a dovecot having stood there. (Probably associated with the bastle).
Name Book 1857; New Statistical Account (NSA, A Cuthbertson) 1845.
