? G clach + ? G claon

‘A stone associated with a brae or incline’? Without early forms any etymology must remain tentative. However, each of the elements can be linked to salient features in the locality. The eponymous stone may be the so-called Inverkeithing Stone, a 10-foot high cross-slab, destroyed in 1835, which stood only c.300 metres from where Clockcluine Road meets the Great North Road. While the brae (G claon) would refer to the steeply rising Clockcluine Road itself (now the B916).

The name appears on OS Pathf. in Clockluine Road and Clockluine Wood.
