Notes

This is the local Gaelic name for Salen, 'the little black bay of Colum Cille'. There was allegedly a chapel in the vicinity, as NMRS record: 'Near Salen (NM 54 73) are the ruins of a cell which belonged to Iona. A rivulet running past it is called ALD-AN-TSEARMANICHE, the Preacher's Burn (OS Allt na Searmoin, NM5741), traditionally from St Columba preaching there.
