Myoor, not myur as Katica believes ;) It's quite simply the Scots word for Moor, and is found in place-names all over the place (I live in a suburb called Muirend).

I believe it's not intuitive for an American to pronounce as you say e.g. dooty instead of dyuty.

But pleasures are like poppies spread,
You seize the flow'r, its bloom is shed;
Or like the snow falls in the river,
A moment white-then melts for ever
