[Note] -- Faulds, A division of a
farm, so denominated because
it is manured by folding sheep
and other cattle on it. -- Jamiesons.

[Note Cullendoch Hill] -- The word cullen is composed of
the Gaelic Cùl, The bacK or cuil, The corner.
and the article an affixed. The affix
doch occurs frequently, I found it generally
near a stream or river in Galloway. Dubhagan
in Gaelic is a deep pool or part of a stream or river
In Ireland (generally) it is called Dubhag. A fish weir
or cruive is called doach In the Scotch dialect
Therefore Cullendoch would signify, The back or corner
of the deep pool or of the cruive
