Notes on Gaelic Title

Cumha Cheann-Cinnidh nan Leòdach Cumha Cheanncinnidh na’n Leodaich / MacLeod of MacLeod’s Lament KB. MacLeod of MacLeod’s Lament. Literally ‘Lament for the Chief of the MacLeods’. Angus MacKay’s circumlocution makes it clear that the reference is to the chief, singular, not to the clan in general, in contrast to his Fàilte nan Leòdach (231) in the same source.
