‘Tuathal’s ridge’. W. J. Watson discusses place-names containing Tuathal (1926, 238); for additions and corrections to Watson, see Taylor in Hall et al. 1998, 140.

According to Webster (1938, 308–9) Drumtuthill originally formed part of Easter Luscar (i.e. Luscar-Eviot) and as such had belonged to Dunfermline Abbey since 1244 (Dunf. Reg. 201, 309). See Luscar CNK for more details.

On OS Pathf. it refers to a relief feature or area, since neither of the settlements to which Drumtuthill seems to refer on SGF (1828) has survived. SGF (1828) shows them on the south-east flank of the ridge (druim), which has now been quarried away.
