Map of Place Names & Old Places in Forgan Parish

The Place-names of Fife is a study by Simon Taylor and Gilbert Markus of the University of Glasgow. It has been published in 5 volumes of which vol. 4 includes Forgan parish. For each place name the meaning of the name is given, plus extensive early source references. The information has been published on the Glasgow University study page and this map has been created from that data.

This map also shows some other local old names, not included in the Glasgow survey, and some (at present) unlocated local names.

Clicking on the place name or the map marker will highlight the location on the map, which can then be clicked to bring up links to the Glasgow study pages and the pages on this site.
