Sc miln + Sc hill

‘Hill near or belonging to a mill, or on which a mill stands’. In the entries above, Millhill is regularly associated with Kirkton of Collessie and Pitlochie # CLS. The mill in question is probably the same as Collessie Mill: in 1479 John Sandilands received a charter confirming to him the lands of Pitlair CLS, Kirkton of Collessie, ‘with the mill within the same toun’ (cum molendino infra eandem villam), and the lands of Pitlochie # CLS (RMS ii no. 1414). The description of the mill as being within the Kirkton of Collessie informs the above NGR.
