Many thanks David. It is strange that Sir Herbert Maxwell didn’t mention it. Nor does it seem to feature in any charter documentation that I have seen. So it’s good to see evidence of its 18th Century existence at least. I’m curious as to whether it might have been a quarterland, ceathramh (a quarter) can be rounded down in the anglicisation process to carn/cairn, amongst other things.
