Notes

The hillside immediately to the east of Ladyfield is Lean nam Ban (OS Digimap)('meadow of the women'), which is called Leac nam Ban (rocky slab of the women) on OS 6 inch 1st edn. Whatever the original generic of this place-name, the 'nam Ban' element may explain the name Ladyfield, and therefore might suggest that it is not a dedication to the BVM.
