‘Hillside where berries grow’? Roy (1753) has Fairnyside (‘hillside covered in ferns or bracken’) at approximately the site of Berryside. This may be a transcription error or re-interpretation of Berryside, substituting the more common ferny for the less common berry.

    OS Pathf. also shows Berryside Burn, which becomes Boghall Burn, which, after meeting the Gilston Burn, becomes the Keil Burn.
