Im not sure if anyone has posted this information before, but here are the links for some idle moments..unfortunately the locations are not connected with the Drennan surname apart from on a superficial level.
Dundrennan Abbey(the Abbey took it's name from the nearby ancient fort, it has no links with people named Drennan)
Dundrennan is also a village located in the same area named after the nearby location of Dun Drennan which as I am sure you all know:-) means "The fort of the Blackthorn or thorn bushes...again no link with the family/families of the Brennan name)the fort predates the Abbey by many centuries and the fact is name is Gaelic in an area which has long stopped speaking the language means it's very old..
I wonder if some of the current Scottish Drennans were from the area and the Dunpart of the name was dropped....this is merely speculation on my part, no evidence to prove otherwise, maybe someone with more knowledge & evidence of these matters could deny or confirm this...
