‘Head, source or upper reaches of the River Eden’. This name must have developed after the Miglo had become known as the Eden, probably in the late eighteenth century. This water-course is still being referred to as the water of Miglo in the OSA in the 1790s (under SLO; see Miglo SLO, below). The Eden has become so well established in the valley of the Miglo that is has even become incorporated into the name of the modern quoad sacra parish of Strathmiglo and Edenshead. OS Pathf. shows Edenshead House.
