‘White ridge’. There is a Drum of Torrie mentioned as part of the lands of William Erskine of Torry in 1799 (Sasines no. 5484). This probably refers to the same feature as Drumfin: the ridge running east–west on which OS Pathf. shows Drum Plantation. At the west end of the ridge, where OS Pathf. shows Shawhill, Roy (1753) shows Drumhead.
