Calbost - Places and Place-names

This section contains a numbered and indexed catalogue, compiled by Angus, of 276 place-names in the Calbost area, including names of crofts, wells and fishing grounds as well as a range of physical features. Each name is accompanied by a varying amount of etymological, historical and other information. Additional details are provided about three specific locations in the form of short essays written by Angus, and there is also an old document describing the boundaries of Calbost in relation to some of the places listed in Angus’s catalogue. It should be noted that the spelling of Gaelic place-names within file names and headers follows the local Ordnance Survey map, and may differ from that used within Angus's own writings.
