This was presumably a name transferred from the area-name Lochaber INV (around Fort William). It was in place by 1775, attached to a house which lay immediately west of OS Pathf. Westfield Wood, at NO496105, to the south of its present position. This earlier site is now in a field on the lands of Gilmerton, which according to Mr Purves of Gilmerton House is still referred to as Lochaber, and where remains of a building are still shown on OS Pathf. In 1815 it lay on the estate of Lathockar (SAUL MEP 17).
