There are two places with this name in Glenorchy parish – as well as a Brecklate. There is a Bracklie (Braclach in OS(1870)) at NN 338451 which is associated with Achallader and Barravourich in the seventeenth century but for which I have no independent valuation. There is a Brackley at NN 1726 which is located by Langlands and which was worth 2m.
In GD 112/2/14/1 of 1765 there is reference to 1m Kinachragan commonly called the fisher’s markland with fishings on Lochow and ¼ of meadow of Cosh. In GD 112/2/14/24 (no date) there is reference to 1m Croftclarich and 1m Pouligreie, both in the west end of Kenchreckine, and meadows called the Cosh. (Perhaps on south side of river facing Cois Bhain in NN 1428). It seems that Kinchrackine was divided into 4 x 1m units. With regard to the east end of Kenchreckine we find Marg-a’-Mhuilinn (the Mill markland) at c. NN 157274 and Marg-dhubh (the black markland) at c. NN 154275 in Upper Kinachreachan in OS(1870). The variant spellings continue onto today’s map (Explorer 377) where the western part of the farm is now Lower Kinachreachan and the eastern part is Upper Kinchrackine.
In GD 112/2/14/24 (no date) there is reference to 2m Ardtetle called Marginradmore (&) Marginellane which are the individual marklands. A footnote on p 202 of HP IV (referring to a sasine of 1433-4) wonders if the water of Teatle was the boundary between Glenorchy and Lochow.
Boundaries given in detail in AS I (325) of 1650 – see also AS II (462-3) of 1633 & GD 170/87 of 1686. Probably equals £5 Auchawin in AS II (949) of 1657. Included Fraoch Eilean.
Part of Ardachyne according to RMS IV (1592) No 6 of 1562. Often linked with Barr an Droighinn (1529, 1588, 1630) and Ardachyne (1588?, 1604, 1630). These two farms (1½m each) must have maintained the priest. In 1588 Inishail included a minister’s house and ‘zaird’ according to TSES Vol V, Pt I, 1916, p 56 (quoting Argyll Charters).
5m(1751) included Creginine & Cretdachter. In Clan Campbell IV pp 393-4 for 1774 the 5m Phantilands is described as including Balliemore, Ballibeg and the croft of Craigenany. See HP II pp 155-6 for derivation of the name. Eilean Tighe Bhain (NN 043249) is just on the Inishail side of the boundary drawn across the waters of Loch Tromlee in OS 6″ Sheet CXII of 1871. (See also Argyll II No 289).
Eichterachin(1529), Ichterachim(1633 & 1640) where the first element looks to be iochdrach (nether or lower). However RHP 6216 marks Icch Crachan to the south of Crachan. OPS II, I, p 134 refers to 10m Eichtrianchin in 1601 and 2m of the same named Barrafailis. AS II (144) of 1622 refers to 2m Baraphaill with the inn known as Tynalone as part of Ichterachim. AS II (505) of 1634 says Barraphaill & the croft called Tynleine are pendicles of Icherachin.
The parishes of Glenorchy and Inishail include some Bo- or Both- names. These are rare as farm-names in the West Highlands but there is another significant cluster in Glen Roy (Lochaber).
