|Sources||This name was gathered as part of a local research project on the place-names of Strath, Isle of Skye and was published in a booklet by SNH and AÀA. The Following quote appears in that booklet:
“Port MhicMhannain is ‘Buchannan’s port’. Buchannan is not a local name, but this was coined at a time when herring fishing was a big industry in Loch Eishort and may be linked to an individual concerned with the industry.”
