G srath + en Miglo

‘Strath or broad valley of the Miglo’; see Miglo SLO, above, for a discussion of the derivation and application of this name.

    The strath is the broad valley between the Lomonds and the Ochils, through which flows the upper reaches of the River Eden, formerly called the Miglo.

    For the now obsolete Ecclesmartin as an alternative name for the settlement of Strathmiglo, see s.n., above. When it first appears c.1248 (St A. Lib. 310), it presumably refers to the lands near the church on which the later town and burgh developed. It is first used as an alternative name for Strathmiglo in 1510.

    For a discussion of the Templelands in Strathmiglo, see Kellock Law # SLO.

/straθˈmɪglo/ locally, older /straˈmɪglɪ/ or/straˈmɪgle/; also known locally simply as Strath /straθ/.
