Linne Bugha Gheàrraidh ‘an an Duibh: 'the pool at the bow-shaped bend in the river at the pasture of 'an an Duibh'. 'An an Duibh can be translated as 'Iain son of dark Iain', or may have some other meaning. My family's peat-banks are in this area, NB 3045. The 'A-mach an gleann' project grew as a response to the realisation that names such as this can easily be forgotten as land-use changes and familiarity with and understanding of the land is lost.
