Raddery —
Ratherie and Wester Ratherie 1576 ;
G. Radharaidh from radhar ‘an arable field not in tillage’ (H.S.D.), pasture ground with -ach suffix, giving radhargh, place of pasture, old locative radharaigh. In Perthshire we have “na radharaichan,’ the places of pasture. ‘Daimh mhor Radharaidh,’ the big oxen of Raddery, is part of a local saw, which may, however, be really aimed at the people of Raddery. <1>
