The road by Knockbain

Knockbain or Kilmuir Wester and Suddy is a parish in Ross-shire, 3½ miles north-west of Inverness; containing the villages of Munlochy and North Kessock. The name Kilmuir is Gaelic, implying "a church dedicated to Mary;" and Suddy signifies "a good place for a settlement." The two districts, once separate parishes, were united in 1756, when they received the name of Knockbain, by which they have since been called, but which was originally applied only to a cold and desolate moor, whereon the church and manse were built.
