Applecross Placenames Project


Gaelic name: Violet Pool

Name in Original Source: Violet Pool

English meaning: Violet Pool

Placename feature: River pool

Notes: This name applied to what was presumably a deliberately managed woodland. It lay between A' Cheapaich on its south-east side, Sardal on its south, and finally the fields of Faoilinn on the west and north-west side. It is still under trees today although the 21st century deciduous woodland is not managed the same way, nor is it as comprehensively covered
