G tìr + ? –in

‘Land place’. The land (G tìr) in question probably refers specifically to arable land, the Sc equivalent of which was field, as seen in neighbouring Seafield. Compare also Tyrie (parish), and Tyries, Kildrummy parish, both ABD. For more details of Tyrie in the fourteenth century, see Seafield above.
