Knockintavil[edit]

This is misleading. Knockintavil is clearly not what the settlement was known as in Gaelic (the Gaelic alphabet lacking a letter 'v' and 'k', for a start) and thus it is an Anglicisation of the Gaelic name. Ideally this should be replaced with the actual Gaelic name, if anyone knows it (the first element seems likely to be "Cnoc" meaning "small hill" but I'm uncertain on the rest), or at the very least this distinction should somehow be made clear.

Many thanks for the correction, Foolish Child. I have checked the spelling with a source which I believe to be reliable (http://www.theisleofjura.co.uk/web_365/Gaelic%20Place%20Names%20Index.html) and corrected the article accordingly. Dhmellor (talk) 09:12, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
