Local myth tells that Maggie Redhead was a witch who lived locally. Unfortunately she was put to death. Before being caught she managed to hide her gold underneath one of the many rocks.

Interesting story. I wondered why the east top of this hill was called Maggie Redhead on the 1:25000 OS. Lots of rocks on this hill if I remember right for the gold to be under. Big fence across top, not good if you're looking for the summit, probably south side of fence. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Found a rock with 5 cup marks on the next door hill Battlefield. Guess what idiot left his location finder in the car at Thorax. Still going up for a good look with Sean Macgowan who lives on the Maggie redhead Hill. drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy
