‘Hill-side or slope of Cults’, now a large ruin, it lies on a north-facing slope or brae surrounded by the extensive limestone-quarries and kilns of Cults Hill. It was called Sodom Park on nineteenth-century OS maps. However, if Braeside Cult on the 1800 gravestone refers to this place, as is likely, then an alternative, and more neutral, name was current from at least the late eighteenth century. See also Sodom Park CLT.
