Miggie’s Acres 1900 x 1949 OS 6 inch County Series, 2nd revision

? pn Miggie or Sc * miggie + Sc or SSE acre

A field-name which lies above and to the north of what may be Langstruther # KCQ. While the first element appears to be a personal name, it is probably a re-interpretation of an earlier *Miggie Acres, containing Sc *miggie or *meggie, unrecorded in the lexicon, meaning ‘boggy’. See under *miggie in Element’s Glossary, PNF 5.

It is not named on OS 6 inch 1st edn, although a building is marked at the site.
