Drumdyvane * KGH S NT269886 2 50m

(Tyri with) Dromdyuane 1320 x 1329 RMS i app. 1, no. 84 [Robert I grants to William of Kinghorn, clerk and burgess, two carucates of land, one of Seafield, and one of Tyrie with Drumdyuane]

G druim + ?

The first element is clearly Gaelic druim ‘ridge’. The second element may be related to OIr dimain, ‘unprofitable, useless, idle, unoccupied, fruitless, empty’, of land, ‘waste, uncultivated’, as in Bannrighan in Tire Dimáin, ‘the Queen of the Wasteland’ (DIL).

For more details of its ownership and tenancy, see Seafield below. It may be the earlier name for Grange, hence the above NGR.
