[Note]
This name appears to be the
Gaelic words Poll an uisge i.e.
the deep Stream of Water which as a
name does not convey proper sense & therefore
must have originally some other epithet added such as
duibh or buidh prefixed to it in order to make proper sense as a name

[Note]
Beinn, breac, the Spotted hill,
