While Castland has nothing to do with ‘castle’, some of the early forms show that it was being re-interpreted as such. Its relative proximity to Rosyth Castle was perhaps a reason for this, although it was not part of the barony of Rosyth.
OS Pathf. also shows Castlandhill Cottages and Castlandhill Woods in the vicinity.
