Drumtrissel 1855 OS 6 inch 1st edn

? Sc drum + ? Sc thrissel

‘Thistle-ridge’; Sc drum is loaned from G druim ‘ridge. This name looks as if it is a relatively recent Sc name, but structured (perhaps humorously) like a G name to give trissel as the specific following the generic, instead of preceding it as is usual in Scots.

    OS Name Book 17, 28 describes it as ‘a small eminence, part of the farm of Muirhead’, and states that there is a trig station on it.
