One of the few references to Craigielands is the following, from the Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland: A Survey of Scottish Topography, Statistical, Biographical and Historical, edited by Francis H. Groome and originally published in parts by Thomas C. Jack, Grange Publishing Works, Edinburgh between 1882 and 1885, and reprinted in Scottish Places

"Kirkpatrick-Juxta, a parish of Upper Annandale, NE Dumfriesshire. It takes the suffix Juxta on account of its being nearer to Edinburgh than any of the other Kirkpatricks; and it contains the station of Beattock and the village of Craigielands, with Beattock post and telegraph office under Moffat."

On 19th century maps Craigielands is south of Beattock Village.
