Origin of Bogle Hole?

Word has reached the Website that the Bogle Hole was originally the Bugle Hole as it was from there that Bruce came in to the town sounding his bugle! Is this true?
Isabelle Gow was visiting elderly relatives the other day and they gave her their mother's copy of "Marjory of the Mon'y Lochs, Her Cookery Book". It was published in 1902 for the Lochmaben Parish Church Bazaar. It contains recipes, advice, adverts and mentions several Lochmaben folk. Fascinating. There's even a recipe for rook pie!
They also told me that their Dad told them that the Bogle Hole was originally the Bugle Hole as it was from there that Bruce came in to the town sounding his bugle! Be interesting if anyone else has heard that story.
