G gasg + G an + G dail

‘Ridge of the haugh or (water) meadow’ (G gasg na dalach). Dail ( a Pictish loan-word into Gaelic), gen. dalach, usually refers to (good) grass land by water. Cassindilly lies near the summit of the ridge, on the 160 m contour line, so the dail contained in the name probably refers to the flatter land to the east along the banks of the burn.
