Notes: The precise location of these yews has been a mystery for some time, but some of Hutchison's yews have now been discovered in a private garden at Otterston, near Aberdour. Hutchinson described 'six fine yew trees standing in a row, with trunks measuring from 6' to 9' in girth. These have evidently at one time formed part of an old hedge, but are now fine specimen trees'. Three of them have survived and are recorded here.
