Parish of Carsphairn

[Note Polnaskie Burn] -- This name appears tolerable plain to be
the Gaelic words Poll an uisge i,e, The deep
Stream of water, which is rather a sort of pleonism
& therefore must have originally some other epithet
perhaps such as duibh or buidh prefixed to it
in order to make proper sense
