G druim + ? -in

‘Place at or on a ridge’. I assume that the ending derives from the locational suffix –in. It occurs only in Drummy Muir and Drummy Wood (q.v.). The commonty of Drummy, mapped accurately in 1793, seems to represent Drummy Muir, and the marches seem to be those of modern Drummy Wood. The latter of these is shown on OS Pathf. near the summit of a ridge which rises to about 140 m and which marks the boundary between KTT and MAI.
