The meaning of this strange name is obscure. On Ainslie/Fife (1775) a small settlement called Throng Stone is shown to the north-west at c.NO545057. This may be associated with, and contain the same specific element as, another name that appears on Ainslie/Fife (only): Thrumfield or Throunfield (for which see also Scotshall CBE).
