The following quotation comes from the Imperial Gazetteer of Scotland, edited by John Marius Wilson and published in 1868. This reference was found in volume II, p.815:

"GOLDIELANDS, an ancient castellated tower or peel-house, on an eminence on the right bank of the Teviot, 1½ mile above Hawick, Roxburghshire. It is one of the most entire on the Border,- square, massive, and of vulnerable aspect. It was anciently the mansion of a family of the surname of Goldie, whence it derived its present appellation. It is now the property of the Duke of Buccleuch. Its last inhabitant, a Scott, is said to have been hanged over its gate for the marauding and treasons of a reiver's career."
