‘Place beside the muir’, the muir in question being Monksmoss or Edens Muir. The settlement of Muirside, a house shown on the 1856 map, no longer exists, but the name survives in OS Pathf. Muirside Wood (though the wood, a significant plantation at the west end of the Wilderness, has largely disappeared, leaving not much more than the name).
