Bay  Inverness Shire


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

Bay, a hamlet and a sea-loch in Duirinish parish, Isle of Skye, Inverness-shire. The hamlet lies at the head of the loch, 17 miles WNW of Portree. The loch partially intersects Vaternish peninsula; descends 2¾ miles west-north-westward to the lower part of Loch Dunvegan; and, though much exposed to north-westerly winds, affords good anchorage in ordinary weather.
