en Knock Hill

Knockhill now marches with the lands of Nydie, but is represented by SGF (1828) as forming part of them. If Konakin is Knock(hill), then it was held by Hugh of Nydie of the bishop of St Andrews in the early thirteenth century (SHS Misc. iv, 312; see *Knock SSL, above).

OS 1:10,000 map (2006) shows Knockhill of Nydie House at NO443165, a name which co-incidentally reflects the original tenurial relationship between Knockhill and Nydie. OS Pathf. also shows Knockhill Farm (NO441165) and Knockhill Quarries (NO446166).
