Description""In a deep pool [on the Coquet] at Blindburn, locally called the 'Maskin' (named after a 'maskin-pot', an old name for a tea-pot), a large brown trout was caught a few years ago, weighing no less than seven pounds. It is an established fact amongst anglers that there is always a big trout in Blindburn pool. Blindburn House is picturesquely situated on the north bank of the Coquet, close to where the streamlet that gives it its name enters the main stream. Steep and lofty hills close it in on all sides."
