It seems more probable thet the name is derived not from one well but several; namely the Buck Well, the Siller Wells, Walston Well, and many others, named and named and nameless, in the neighbourhood from which no less thab three rivulets descend in the immediate vicinity. But probably as this etymology may appear, the conjecture may still be hazarded, that, as the neighbouring parish oof Dolphinton, which anciently belonged to the same proprietors, took its name from Dolfyn, a brother of Cospatrick, the parish of Walston may have taken its name from Waldef, another brother of the same Earl, and that from Waldef's-toun, the name may have been transformed into Walyston or Walston". In fugure, this parish approaches towards a trapezium, the northern, eastern and southern boundaries extending to about 3 miles respectively and the western to about 2 miles. It is bounded on the north by a corner of Carnwath and by Dunsyre, on the east by Dolphinton, on the south (having touched Kirkurd and Skirling in a single point) and on the west by Liberton." Stat.
