Notes

The only reason to suggest this as a possible hagiotoponym is that it is Loch Chaluim in 19th century. But Calum is not the usual way for Gaelic place-names to indicate a saint of that name. Also Chealamy may be an existing name. Modern OS maps indicate a settlement called Chealamy at NC722950, nearby. But this settlement is not named, nor even shown, on OS 6 inch 1st edn.
