‘High ridge’. The 1790 Sasine situates part of the lands of Drummaird in SCO. The Archibald family, first mentioned in connection with the lands of Drummaird in 1531, gave their name to the division of Drummaird called Trencher or Archibaldtoun; while the Leslie (earls of Rothes) connection will have given rise to the name Rothesrigg (1790 Sasines no. 2715). This same document names another part of Drummaird as Duriesdale, that is the portion or division (Sc dale) belonging to the lairds or tenants of Durie SCO.
