Sc kiln + Sc hill
‘Hill with a kiln on it’. It is shown as Gallahill on SGF (1828), suggesting a site where the gallows once stood (unless this is an error for Kilhill). Vast quantities of medieval pottery have been found on the north-facing hillside some 800 m south of Kilhill, at NO408115, which may relate to the presence of a kiln here, where there is a plentiful supply of both clay and coal.
