? G loch + ? G càrnach

‘Rocky or stony loch’? ‘Loch where there are cairns’? The name appears too late in the record to allow anything but the most tentative etymology. From the description in 1816 (Sasines no. 10978), it would seem to be somewhere south of the entrance to the Coates House drive (hence the above approximate NGR). The ‘loch’ or boggy area might therefore be the flat ground around Dumbarnie NBN, discussed in some detail under *Aberdollo LAR, above.

    It was part of the lands of Coats NBN, q.v.
