I believe Ardrey is dervived from the Scottish Gaelic - ARD meaning high and AIRIGH meaning a pasture(pronounced ARY).I have found two in Scotland. One on Loch Awe,Argyll, just north of Fincharn Castle. It is near a burn (stream) which has Airigh as part of its name. The other is on the Arnamurchan peninsula.
