Bannachra  Dunbartonshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Bannachra like this:

Bannachra or Benuchara, a hamlet near the southern border of Luss parish, Dumbartonshire, on Fruin Water, 3½ miles ENE of Helensburgh. It lies near the scene of a sanguinary conflict between the Colquhouns and Macgregors in 1602; and it contains the ruins of an old fortalice of the Colquhouns. Bannachra Muir ascends from the southern vicinity of the hamlet to a height of 1028 feet.
