Jane,

I looked this up in my Gaelic sources at one point when I was teaching
the dance. The other part of the compound appears to mean "willow tree".
Thus the whole name would translate as "Willow Stream" (if my quests into
Gaelic are correct - I don't claim to be fluent by any means). Where this
particular stream/burn might be located, perhaps one of our native Scots
could help determine.

Cheers, Alan Twhigg.
