Here are my thoughts on Chapelton. It’s curious, it seems Chapelton Row etc. was a planned settlement for various trades – smith, joiners, perhaps others, but I don’t see any obvious reason why it’s there, if there is any history it would be fascinating to know more about it.
Good afternoon Alan, really interesting, thanks again. My only comment would relate to Knockmulloch. As I understand it G mullach is the top of something, a hill, roof and so on, eg mullach na beinne. Gives rise to place-names like The Mulloch, the name of two prominent though low elevation hills on the edges of each of Dalry and New Galloway. The construction Cnoc-mullaich would suggest ‘hill of a top’ which is a bit odd? Would you perhaps have been thinking of Cnoc Maolach (an adjective coming from maol, bald?) I think this is more likely.
