Pictish *dol

‘Water-meadow, haugh’ (borrowed into Gaelic as dail). It no doubt took its name from the flat lands around the Motray Water south-west of Ballindean BMO.

    The Sc or SSE plural of the later forms refers to the division into Nether and Upper Doll, as seen for example on Ainslie/Fife (1775).

    Its last inhabitant, William Bell, left at Martinmas 1842 (Campbell 1899, 641).
