Note:  Urquhart is a name that is derived from the place name, Airchart.  Airchart is first recorded in the early life of Saint Columba, the great Celtic saint.  In modern times there are two parishes in Scotland named Urquhart, one in Elgin and one on the Black Isle.  The meaning of the word Urquhart itself has been given various Scottish Gaelic translations including woodside, by a rowan wood, or fort on a knoll.  There is also Urquhart Castle on the banks of  Lock Ness.
