Various "In Gaelic "Knap" means hill, and "Daill" a plain, a field, or a dale. "Knapdale", therefore, signifies a District of country composed of hills and dales. The name is derived from, and is descriptive of, the appearance of that part of the country of which South Knapdale forms a portion. The district of Knapdale is divided into two parishes, the one north, the other south, to distinguish them according to their relative geographical position. South Knapdale is bounded on the north by North Knapdale; on the north-east by Kilmichael Glassary; and Lochgilphead; on the east & southeast by Loch Fine, East Loch Tarbert, & West Loch Tarbert; on the south by the parish of Kilberry; and on the west, by the Sound of Jura. The ancient name of the parishes of North Knapdale & South Knapdale when united was Kilvicocharmaig. They were disjoined about the year 1730.
