Coup-my-horn KWY S NO355037 1 373 120m
Coupmahorn 1793 Sasines no. 3422
Sc coup + Sc ma + Sc horn
‘Tip my horn’, probably in the sense of tipping a drinking-horn to have a drink. This name was perhaps applied humorously to a settlement whose occupants were especially partial to taking a drink. There is also a local tradition that the name was connected with royal hunting parties from Falkland.
It does not appear on OS 6 inch 1st edn. There is similarly named place, Cockmyhorn, in the northern part of DGY in west Fife (Ainslie/Fife, for which see PNF 1, Map 22, p. 255).
