Daugh of Cairnborrow

An upland tract in NW Aberdeenshire, the Daugh of Cairnborrow lies to the north of the River Deveron 4 miles (6.5 km) west of Huntly. The unusual word daugh comes from the term davoch which is an old Scots areal unit of land. The name appears almost exclusively in place-names arranged along an east-west axis crossing the Aberdeenshire-Moray border, of which the Daugh of Cairnborrow is the most easterly.
