Also Blairlyne: it appears as such in Blaeu's map, based on Pont's original map, entitled "Glasgow and the county of Lanark".
The usual spelling is Blairlinn. Blairlinn consisted of three farmsteadings: Wester, Easter and Mid-Blairlinn. They sat to the south of the Luggie Water, a stream that flowed from Cumbernauld through Waterside to the centre of Kirkintilloch and into the River Kelvin. Today Blairlinn is better known as an industrial estate, developed from Mid-Blairlinn, in the southern part of the new town of Cumbernauld, at present in the administrative area of North Lanarkshire.
"Blairlinn farm no longer exists. This farm was actually three farms (East/Mid/West); Mid Blairlinn abutted Clayslap, located between Cumbernauld and Myvot. It was part of the Shaw's holdings, later acquired by Robert Muirhead whose granddaughter's daughter sold it in 1886. All the land in this area was originally part of the lands of Glentore with the superior being Hamiltons then the Flemings.
In the late 17th and early 18th Century, a Sommerville family owned East Blairlinn but the family resided in Glasgow. Perhaps they portioned a parcel to the Cleland family who was farming there. However, by 1785, Easter Blairlinn was occupied by James Shaw; Clelands were at Mid Blairlinn, along with the Wotherspoon, Darnly and Paterson families.
John Gartshore died 1 Jan 1714, Blairlinn farm, New Monkland."
