Abstract
Far from referring to “New Ireland”, the place name Atholl refers to the ford replaced by the ‘new’
Bridge of Tilt in the early 1800s. Various possibilities regarding the exact meaning of the whole
name are discussed but, while I may have my own views, I have to concede that there is not yet one
specific interpretation which can be advanced over at least some of the others. This paper invites
academics and others with specific relevant expertise to review the evidence in the light of this
paper in the hope that the options may be whittled down further and/or that any evolution of the
name may be specified more precisely.
