Scottish National Dictionary (1700–)
COIT, Quoit, Cute, v. “To amuse one's self by curling on the ice. Cute is used in the same sense in Upp. Clydes.” (Ayr. 1825 Jam.2). The form cute is confirmed by Ayr.4 1928.
Comb.: cutin-stane, cutie-, a curling-stone (Clydes. 1825 Jam.2).[Apparently transferred from the game of quoits to that of curling. Eng. quoit and Eng. dial. coit are used to mean fling, hurl, in gen., esp. of flat objects.]
