basically, as part of a research project i have to do for D of E . . . me and my group are looking at an area of the West Coast.
There's a loch though, that's important to the area we're studying , called
"Loch Leathad a bhaile fhoghair"
Just wondering if any of the gaelic speakers here would be able to translate it for me!
I know a bit of Gaelic myself -but not sure about this.
Also - a ruined croft shown in the 1700's maps as being "Clachhallick shieling"... any ideas what that could be? I guess it's "stone" from "Clach"... dunno about the "Hallick" part though (looks like they spelt it wrong anyway!)

I'm doing the learners higher this year, but it;s not til a week on tuesday
That's crap...the Gaelic learners higher is one of the easiest IMO
Leathad = slope/brae although Leathan = broad
and "bhaile fhoghair" i think is autumn village or autumn town
Maria or Sofax would be the best ones to ask though, cause they;re both fluent
I would say it has something to do with a stone, but i dunno about the second part
