Notes on Gaelic Titles

Blàr Athaill  Blàr Atholl / The Battle of Athole… KK; Blar Atholl / The Battle of Athole K3; The Battle of Athole or Killiecrankie K3 index; Blar atholle JK; Blar Athole JKA. The Battle of Atholl. Although Blàr Atholl can be read as the placename ‘Blair Atholl’  the reading blàr = ‘Battle(field)’  is supported by other names beginning with Blàr. The two readings are not mutually exclusive.
