red mail Bigholm
I'd like to know anything about the area known as Bigholm in the vicinity of Beith. I've seen a reference to the Bigholm hills, regarding a public trail and nearby grazing animals. It is probable that the surname Biggam or Bigham originated either here, or from the village Bigholms in Dumfriesshire, according to The Surnames Of Scotland by Dr. George F. Black. Any history of the name or area would be precious to know.
