‘Old open grasslands’. In spite of being described as part of the barony of Cambo KBS, Auld Leas is in CRA. KBS was created out of CRA in the seventeenth century (see CRA Introduction, Parish Boundaries), and the barony of Cambo included lands on both sides of the new parish boundary.

This place is now Kirklands CRA, q.v. below.
