    Peanmeanach? This is the bothy on the little peninsula south of the railway on the way out towards Morar and Mallaig, isn't it?

    Wonderful place, I spent a few quiet days there about 20 years. It keeps occuringto me to go back but somehow I never have.... yet.

    Interesting name...

    Cornwall has a Porthpean and a Maenporth beach, is there any linguistic connection?

    a quick read up seems to indicate a gaelic/Norse connection for the name but that doesnt rule out a Brythonic influence either seeing as there was a heavy "Welsh" influence certainly around Edinburgh until into the early medieval age

    So there was a welsh influence in Scotland was there? Don't Tell Mike.

    I would have thought a Breton influence as it is the root of 'Cornish- but for Scotland ???

    yup,

    "welsh" in so far as brythonic speakers (cornish, bretons, welsh, cumbrians) all have the same root language

    The people around Strathclyde used to be known as the Strathclyde Welsh
