    google failed me!!! (Mellenish/Mellinish)

    It could be one of those instances where the tune and or the
    dance is more famous than the place. I have found a number of instances
    (especially with Scotland) where a place name is not found on Google or any
    other search engine. I found an entry on this page:
    http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~maryc/bruce01.htm for a  Marion MELLINISH.
    So, one can induct that there may in fact be a place name Mellinish.
    
    However, correspondence with Undiscovered Scotland got this response:
    
    "We've got a searchable Ordnance Survey 1:50K digital map of the whole of 
    Scotland, and it doesn't include either name or any close variant we 
    tried."
    
    I hope that helps!
