G creag + G an + or G creagan + G craobh

‘Crag of the tree’ or ‘little crag of (the) tree’. The OS Pathf. spelling is apparently erroneous, and this interpretation follows the spelling of the 1959 and 2006 maps. It seems to apply to a relief feature in Balcarres Den, the steep-sided gorge of the Den Burn.
