‘Open grasslands at or near a bog’. The same bog is probably referred to by Bogwells KDT and Myregornie KDT q.v. The lands around Bogleys have recently been turned into an open-cast coal-mine, including the field between Bogleys and Myregornie in which stood a prominent standing stone, now removed.
