Inch-Fad, Stirlingshire

Historical Description

INCH-FAD, an isle, in the parish of Buchanan, county of Stirling. The name of this isle, in English "Long Island", is descriptive of its form; it is about a mile in length, and between two and three furlongs in breadth, and lies, like the preceding isle, in Loch Lomond, not far from the main land of the parish. The soil is very fertile, producing excellent grain, and fine pasture; and there is a small portion of wood.
