The first element looks like a surname, but there is no such name in the early records relating to this area, nor is it listed as such in Black 1946. It may, however, represent the surname Kilbowie, from a place near Glasgow (ibid. s.n.).
It is always grouped with lands which are certainly or probably in AMY, which is why it is assigned to this parish. There is no indication as to its more precise location.
