? pn Lillie + Sc field

The first element is probably the personal name related to the uncommon surname Lillie or Lilley, for which see Black 1946, 429. It may also be found in Lillismure # LOG (for which see above).

    This name has survived only as in the field-names Mid and Upper Lilac or Lillock on Parbroath farm CRC.[324] The old holding of Lilac is defined by that part of Parbroath farm which lies in MML, south-east of Parbroath proper. No trace of a settlement has survived.
