Named after the flower? It has given its name to OS Pathf. Violet Latch, the burn which forms the north-east boundary of DNO with SSL (as well as the eastern march of the lands of Stravithie DNO). It may be a jocular reference to Primrose DNO to the east. There is today a field called Violet on the farm of Stravithie Mains, which gives the above NGR.[145]
