Appendix 3 Glossary of place names and grid references[edit]

Skye place-names are derived from both Gaelic and Old Norse sources, together with a number of English forms. Listed below are the place-names used in the main text and the excursions. Where possible, the etymology of the place-name is given. However, accuracy in all cases cannot be guaranteed. Also given are grid references, being the nearest grid line intersection SW of the locality in question. All grid references carry the Ordnance Survey prefix NG but for brevity have been omitted.

Pronunciation

Initial Bh or Mh equals V, but after a broad vowel equals W, as in English "now". Initial C equals K. Initial Fh is silent. Initial Ph equals F. Initial Sh or Th equals H. Initial S after An t- is silent. Final aidh equals y, as in English "my". Final idh equals y, as in English "duty". Th final, or when flanked by vowels, is a strong breathing. Ch in contact with a, o, or u, is a strong guttural, as in "loch". Ch in contact with e or i is a guttural, as in German ich.
