Notes

The name now applies to a house beside Aber. The name is not shown on OS 6 inch 1st edn or 2nd edn maps, suggesting that it may not be the survival of an old name, but rather the re-application of an old name to a place which antiquarian interest has persuaded the owner is at or close to the name mentioned in 1801. Chalets or huts on the nearby Lagganbeg caravan site have been upgraded and given names: 1 San Makessan, 2 San Makessan and so on.
