? Sc cruive + Sc or SSE point

Sc croy is a variant of Sc cruive ‘fish-trap’, in particular one ‘in the form of an enclosure or row of stakes’ (CSD). This is the most likely explanation of this name on this part of the shore of NBH, where fishing with such traps held an important place in the local economy.[365]
