Parish of Ochiltree -- Sheet 35 Plan

Ochiltree is derived by some, from the Gaelic Uchle,
Camp, to which tree is annexed, thereby forming
Uchle-tree or Camp-tree ** This may have arisen from
a place called the Camp, and the rising ground, now occupied
by the houses & gardens of the village, where there were at one time
many large trees, probably of several hundred years of age **
A part of the village is built on what was formerly a camp,
but of its history there is little or nothing known. -
