Notes on Gaelic Titles

Fàilte Mhic an t-Saoir Failte Mhic an t-Saoir / MacIntyres Salute K1; Failte Mhic An-t-Shaoir / MacIntyres Salute KK; MacIntyre’s Salute JK. MacIntyre’s Salute. Called ‘The MacIntyres’ Salute’ in PS Book 11, p. 338, but the Gaelic and English forms in K1 have MacIntyre singular. (So does JK but the apostrophe is not certain owing to mishandling of the manuscript).

Meall na Feannaige Mealee Fenaig C1. The Hillock of the Carrion Crow or Lazy Bed. This interpretation was suggested by Allan MacDonald in 2015:
