This article examines in detail the complex medieval marches of the estate of Wester Kinnear, Kilmany parish, north-east Fife, providing a local historical framework for the mid-13th century grant of the estate to Balmerino Abbey by the de Kinnear family. It combines medieval documentation (including new editions and translations of five relevant charters, one hitherto unpublished) and place-name analysis with intimate knowledge of the local environment, and suggests that such an approach can yield much useful information about the medieval landscape.
