Boleskine House on Loch Ness

On the meaning of the name “Boleskine” (pronounced Boll-ess-kinn) a source states about its Gaelic etymology:

"The name appears [...] to be compounded of these three words, “Boile-eas-ceann,” “ceann” signifying height, summit, “eas” a cataract, and “boile” fury, rage, madness. Hence Boleskine appears to signify the summit of the furious cascade. The cascade here in view is now extensively known under the name of the Fall of Foyers."

Another source says that it comes from:

"poll eas cumhan (pron. kuin), ‘pool of the narrow waterfall,’ i.e., Fall of Foyers."
