Tully Law probably contains G tulach ‘hill’, which then, as an existing name (*Tully), was combined with Sc law ‘hill’ to form Tully Law. Tullylaw Wood is on the southern slope of a hill rising to 65 m, and if it is indeed an old name, then this feature would have given rise to both the Gaelic and the Scots name.
