‘(Settlement) beside a road’, the gate being the old road south from Largoward to Cairnie House, by Colinsburgh, one of the pilgrim routes from Earlsferry to St Andrews. The stretch of this old road which ran past Gateside has now been incorporated into the Balcarres Estate, and its function has been superseded by the B941 from Largoward to Pitcorthie CBE, further to the east.
