Sc muir + Sc edge

A small-holding or cottage which lay in the south part of the lands of Winthank. The eponymous muir is Feddinch Muir CMN, q.v., which lies to the east.

There were two other places of this name in CMN, reflecting the upland nature of the parish: Cameron Parish Papers (1800) lists Wilkieston Moor Edge, while there is a third on the lands of Lathockar, discussed under Morton # CMN (which also contains muir). The NGR is taken from OS 6 inch 1st edn (1855).
