A northward view from the summit of this hill at the northern tip of Barra. The island of Fiaraigh is sunlit in the middle distance, with the west coast of South Uist in the distance.
English/Gaelic names in the Western Isles
In around 1999, the Ordnance Survey replaced English-language placenames in the Western Isles with Gaelic-language names. Some of the more prominent features (e.g. Isle of Barra; Stornoway; Sound of Harris) do have bilingual labels but, on the whole, villages, lochs, peaks etc. generally have the Gaelic names on the modern-day mapping.

Because the English versions have a tendency not to appear on the maps any more, I have decided to use them in my image titles and, as such, a translation will be readily available from the Gaelic labelling on the map.

(NB I have not translated some of the more minor loch and river names, where I have not easily found the English version.)
