Sc hall + Sc croft

‘Croft attached to a hall or high-status residence’. The neighbouring settlement-name Hallburns (Halburnes 1621 Retours (Fife) no. 928 [part of the lands of Cult]; Hallburn 1753 Roy sheet 17, 5; How burns 1775 Ainslie/Fife; Hallburns 1828 SGF; Hallburns 1855 OS 6 inch 1st edn.) at NT034952 probably refers to the same hall, perhaps the hall of Cult.
