Morebattle (m¯or-baw’-ul) n. village in the eastern Borders, on the Kale Water. There are several ancient encampments near here, as well as the reconstructed 16th century Corbet Tower (the origin is probably Old English for ‘building by the lake’, since a lake near there was only drained in the 19th century; the name first appears in 1116).
