‘Enclosure or enclosed settlement of the shieling or cattle station’. The element gart ‘enclosed field, enclosed settlement’ does not occur in any place-names within the medieval bounds of Fife. Gartarry lies at the eastern end of a dense swathe of such names stretching into Lanarkshire as far as the Clyde, as well as into Dunbartonshire as far as the Leven.

OS Pathf. also has Gartarry Wood to the north of Gartarry.
