Full Description

There is now no island on Lochan na Crannaig,
Visited by OS (N K B) 5 June 1970.

Although the ONB (1872) gives the meaning of Lochan na Crannaig (name: NM 4670 6561) as "the small loch of the pulpit", Donaldson (1923) suggests that the very small islet on the loch may be a crannog, and it is to this that the name refers.
Name Book 1872; M E M Donaldson 1923.
