Notes

The names Ardmarnock Bay and Ardmarnock House are formed from the existing (now obsolete) name Ardmarnock. The name must refer to one of the two promontories (àrd)forming Ardmarnock Bay, but which promontory is the original eponym is hard to say. The name may originally have been formed in relation to the settlement rather than the promontory itself, however. The NGR given is for Ardmarnock House.
