SourcesThis name was gathered as part of a local research project on the place-names of the Rough Bounds of Lochaber and was published in a booklet by SNH and AÀA. The Following quote appears in that booklet:

“The prominence north of Rubha Allt na Brachd is called Tòrr a’ Phrionnsa, ‘hill of the prince’. This is the place where it is said Bonnie Prince Charlie stopped for a short while on his way to Glen Finnan.”
