Transcriber's notes

"Loch of the burying place"
Dùn Mòr or Dùin Mhòir - meanings; large mound or big Fort. (Dun frequently signifies a fort). Loch of the burial place would not be a correct translation.
Cille signifies Church or Chapel, see entry for Loch Cille Bhanain. Situated to the West of Loch Dùin Mhòir
