There are two places called Braeside in the parish, so this one (called simply Braeside in 1856) is presumably called ‘Braeside of Lindores’ to distinguish it from the other (see previous entry). However, for much of the twentieth century it was called Lindores Farm, and to further complicate matters, the precise site of Braeside on the 1856 map (and subsequently on the 1898 map) and of Lindores Farm on maps of 1888 × 1914 and 1948 × 1977, is about 250 m north-west of the place marked as Braeside of Lindores on OS Pathf. at NO257154. This latter site, whose buildings are first marked on twentieth-century OS maps (OS 6 inch Imperial edition, 1948 × 1976), is first named on OS 1:10,000 first metric edition (1969 × 1996) where it appears as Braeside of Lindores. The buildings shown as Braeside in 1856 are not named at all on modern OS maps.

    Braeside included OS Pathf. Braeside Mains (see next entry).
