Old Photographs Lamlash Isle Of Arran Scotland

Old photograph of Lamlash on the Isle of Arran, Scotland. The name Lamlash dates back to the Irish monk Molaise of Leighlin, in c.590 spent some time in a cave on Holy Island. Commonly known as MoLaise the Gaelic name of Holy Island was, as a result, Eilean MoLaise. This gradually evolved through Elmolaise and Lemolash to Lamlash, which is what Holy Island was called until early in the 19th century.
