Places[edit]

As a placename, Kinloch usually derives from the Scottish Gaelic "Ceann Loch", meaning head of the Loch

Kinloch or rather Ceann Loch doesn't really mean 'head' in this context but 'end' of the loch. It could be used for either end, but is usually used for the end the water flows out of in a fresh water loch. Ceann Loch Nis the village where Loch Ness flows out into the river is translated as Lochend. With a sea loch it obviously has to be where the brine hits the land e.g. Kinlochbervie.
