COWAL

cowal-area-map

Ancient district in western Scotland, the peninsula that lies between Loch Fyne, on the one hand, and Loch Goil, Loch Long and the Firth of Clyde, on the other.

It belonged to the Scottish Kingdom of Dariada, and was held by a branch of the Cenél Gabráin, called the Cenél Comgaill. This was descended from a prince called Comgall, from whom family and district derived their names.

Cowal became southeastern Argyllshire.
