‘Slope- or incline-farm’. The slope in question is the steep south and south-east facing slope immediately north-east of Auchtertool village. See Watson 1926, 365. Compare Clentrie BEA, DFL, which appears to contain the same elements.

West(er) Clentrie has disappeared, but is shown as W Glentree on Ainslie/Fife (1775) at NT2188910, apparently straddling what is now the Dronachy Burn. SGF (1828) shows West Clenntree on the north side of the burn at NT221910, at the same position as OS 1856 6 inch map West Clentry. East(er) Clentrie appears on OS Pathf. as Clentrie Farm (NT226913).
