? G àird or àrd + ?
‘Height of ? ’; or ‘high ?’. Given the rather alarming variation in the early forms of this name, and its relatively late appearance in the record, it is fairly pointless to offer any analysis beyond the fact that the first element may derive from a Gaelic (or Pictish) word relating to ‘high’ or ‘height’, while the rest of the name may have been influenced by Arnydie CER (PNF 2), c. seven km to the south.
According to Gordon’s MS map of 1640s it lay west of Todhall, between Todhall and Foodie, hence the above NGR.
