Sc stand + Sc alane

‘Stand alone’. Near the summit of its hill (105m), and almost 1 km distant from its nearest neighbour (OS Pathf. Muirmealing), its isolated position probably explains its humorously descriptive name.

There is another Standalane which is part of a housing estate on the south side of Kincardine TUL at NS933874.

Other Sc names referring pawkily to isolated or separate dwellings are Lodge-malane (‘lodge (by) myself’) and Reekit-lane (literally ‘smoked alone’).
