It was probably originally Westfield of Strathruddie. Obliterated by opencast coal-mining then land reclamation, the name lives on in the enormous Westfield Opencast Workings which have swallowed up the house and lands. It has also given its name to the Westfield Development Centre (OS Explorer 367, 2001) c.1.5 km to the north-west of the original site.[59]
