Applecross Placenames Project


This database contains all the place names so far mapped for the Applecross peninsula. Please note that some names refer to off-shore features such as reefs, or even to metaphysical features such as fishing marks. Some names currently appear only in the database: this is because they have not had a location fixed. In other words, we know of, or have sources for, these names – we just don’t know exactly where they were.

Search the database by name, keyword or by A-V.
By clicking on a name in the database, you will get the Gaelic orthography, English translation, geographical or informational notes, co-ordinates and so on. The link will take you to the Google map so you can see the name in its location.
