G druim + ? G clachach

‘Stony ridge’. If the second element is indeed G clachach ‘stony’, then the same dissimilation can be assumed as is posited for Pittachope FLK (above), and which can be observed in Sauchope CRA (PNF 3), earlier Salchoc etc (q.v.).

    The approximate NGR is supplied on the basis that Clob on Ainslie/Fife represents this place.

    Note that Drumlochie, unidentified, in Fife Ct. Bk. Index of Places, is Drumlochy, Blackford PER.
