Milldown Bay
Milldown Bay
"This name, which signifies 'The Brown Heaps' or the 'Brown Knolls' may have been taken from the small sandy knolls that are between Col Mill and the shore. Mill is nominative plural of the Gaelic noun 'Meall', a heap or knoll, and 'Down' a gaelic adjective signifying Brown or Grey."
