This is most likely a transferred or imported name. In the 1850s Carleton consisted of ‘a few cottages’ (OS Name Book 94, 6), but it has been overwhelmed by Glenrothes New Town. Local street names include Carleton Crescent and Carleton Avenue, the latter of which overlooks Carleton Park playing fields.
