Notes

Maidenhead rocks may well be the feature which gave name (as *The Maidens, perhaps--cf. Blaeu "Maidens of Turnberry"), to the settlement Maidens which has grown up around the harbour (for which see NMRS Camore ID 151709), and thence gave their name to Maidenhead Bay / Maidens Bay (recorded in OSNB 1856)
