G ceann + foithir

‘End of the territory or terrace’. The second element is either G foithir ‘terrace’ (see Watson 1926, 509) or a G adaptation of a P word *uotir ‘territory’, perhaps some kind of administrative unit (see Taylor 2000, 205).

OS Pathf. 384 has Kinneddar Mains (which supplies the NGR and altitude for Kinneddar),[211] Nether Kinneddar, Muirside of Kinneddar, Kinneddar Park, and Kinneddar Bridge (over the Bluther Burn).
