‘Slope, brae’. Note that when it first appears in the record (1241) it is a relief feature (described as a ‘little hill’), probably referring to OS Pathf. Clune Craig (118 m). OS Pathf. also has Clune Plantation. The site of Clune is now in ruins.

The low hills along the south side of Loch Ore, including Clune Craig, are referred to locally (in Kelty) as The Clin.
