Bargaty 1783 Stobie
G bàrr + ? G gad + ? - in
‘(Place of) withy or osier or switch hill’. The final syllable is probably the loc. suffix –in. The G element b?rr ‘hill, summit’ is very rare in Fife names, but is found twice in CUS (see CUS Introduction under the discussion of *Barchapel).
According to Beveridge (1885, ii, 367) it was ‘a farm which formerly stood on the road between Shiresmill CUS and East Grange CUS ... the ascent is still known as Bargatie Brae’
NGR is inferred from Stobie (1783).
