Hello all,

               I've had a reply from a very helpful guy named John Hamilton who works at the Kilmacolm Trust.

Whilst looking at OS plans he has found a house named Auchinhalrig at the top of Barclaven Rd.He has checked the name in the Royal Mail postcode and the spelling is given as above.

Very grateful to him and everyone who helped.

According to the Kelly's / Post Office directories for Glasgow for the first part of the 20th Century, and which can be consulted in the Mitchell Library, Glasgow, 7 Bridgegate was occupied by Andrew Galloway, solicitor (later Writer). My grandmother's marriage was witnessed there in 1919.  It is an "irregular" marriage, in effect a civil marriage before Registry Offices were recognised for solemnizing marriages in 1935.  The two parties declared in front of two witnesses (of their choosing) that they are husband and wife; this required a Sheriff's Warrant (which in my grandmother's case was obtained earlier on the same day from the Sheriff Substitute of Lanarkshire on 4th October 1919.  Hope this helps.

Auchenhalrig or Auchinhalrig is a hamlet not far from Fochabers in the parish of Bellie in Moray.
See http://www.geograph.org.uk/gridref/NJ3761

I imagine that the house in Kilmacolm is named after this, as there doesn't seem to be another place with a similar name elsewhere.

Matheson's The Place Names of Elginshire says, "Here we have a Celtic word as a prefix to a Norse word - Achadh, a field, na, of and halr, a slope - the field of the hillside slope. The Danish Ryg, a ridge of land, forms the appendix".

I have to question that interpretation, however, because Auchenhalrig is in the middle of a flat area, with nothing remotely resembling a hill slope or ridge close by.
