Extra info
Balquhidder (the modern spelling) is ...

Balquhidder (the modern spelling) is a village in the Highlands, near Stirling. Traditionally it belonged to Clan MacLaren, until during the 16th century the neighbouring MacGregors began to encroach on the area and forced the MacLarens to share it with them. The famed Rob Roy MacGregor is buried in Balquhidder.

The »quh« in »Balquhidder« is pronounced like »w«, so the place is Bal-WID-der rather than Bal-KWID-der. (The same applies to other Scottish names like »Urquhart« or »Colquhoun«.)
