Name in Original Source: Achadh Loch na Creadha

English meaning: Field of the clay loch

Placename feature: Outby field

Notes: This name appears on the Griffin/Beaton map and appears to be sited east of Meall nam Feadan and between two small lochs. No Loch na Creadha appears in any Ordnance Survey map or source, however the map has a note provided in brackets to indicate that the name refers to clay. This name and location requires further investigation, and the co-ordiantes are approximate
