County of Inverness -- Parish of South Uist
Bàgh na Haun: Note by John T Hoban: I should much doubt this Etymology. There is no river near. There are two similar cases in South Uist & Eriskay where a bay is called Bay na Haun although there is no river. It is probably Havn, Norse = haven or harbour
