I note my post, reference insect mountains, enthusiastically mentioned in dispatches.
Alas my apologies have to be retracted.
The Maggot of Kirkcudbrightshire's Maggot Hill turns out to be a corruption of maakit, Southern Lallan Scots for dirty (the closest English translation). A child would be maakit or a dog would be maakit ie covered in mud and dirt.
The etymology is the same as maggot coming from mawk or maak, Lallan Scots for maggot.
So maakit is literally maggotted - but is used to describe muddy/dirty as above.
Maggot Hill is muddy/dirty hill which makes more sense.
