? en Tollie + Sc hill

The first element may derive from G tulach ‘hill, knowe’. If so, then an explanatory hill has been added in the Scots-speaking period. Henderson states that it lies in what was known of old as ‘Northern Lumfynnanis’, and that a burial site of the late Bronze Age was discovered here in 1927 (1990 s.n.). The tulach may therefore have originally referred to a burial mound.
