Medderloch is Meaderloch - old gaelic name for the area of Benderloch, which did not become the village until the 1900's with the railway..  .. and there are plenty of secluded glens throughout the area, chance are in Barcaldine woods area maybe ?? . It would be great to hear more of the regular places for travellers in the area ? - maybe Jess Smith could help ?

Does anyone know which glen in Appin or 'Medderloch' fits the description 'a secluded glen in the district of Medderloch' It was by all accounts a regular camp for tinker travellers in the 18th century.
