Cnoc Bealach an Eisg - Knoll (of the) pass (of the) scurrilous poet. Relying on MacLeod’s translation as “pass of the fish”, this then would be the “hill of the pass of fish”. 6955 9945
Cnoc Bealach an Eisg No. 1 – A landscape view from the flat northern shoulder of Beinn Bhioraig, the cnoc lies in the dead centre of the image with a bald rock face and bracken patches on its right. This image is complimentary to Bealach an Eisg No. 1 and Maol nan Damh No. 1 in that it shows the whole topography in relationship. Maol nan Damh can be seen to the distant left, with the Isle of Scarba looming in the background, while the depression between the maol and the cnoc is the Bealach an Eisg. Barely visible on the distant right is the upper portion of the hillridge that contains Cnoc dubh Port nam Furm.
