Sc sandy + Sc dub
Sc dub is a pool, a pond, puddle, or a waterhole in a moss, often containing stagnant water. It may have been associated with the small burn that runs immediately to the north of the steading.
OS Pathf. and OS Explorer (2001) mark this settlement Shieldbank (q.v.) but this is clearly a recent change. OS 6 inch (1855) also shows Sandy Dub Braes at NS996945. It formed part of the lands of Boreland SLN.
