Notes

Until late 20th c., this was Glenkill; for full early forms see Fraser, PNArran, who reckons gleann (na) coille more likely than gleann (na) cille. However, given relationship to Kilbride / Lamlash, plausibly a glen belonging to a church at some point. Most recent OS maps (via Digimap) list this as Glenkiln (incl. OS Pathfinder 1984), but all before this have Glenkill. Presumably some relationship with "The Kiln House" just to N.
