The location assigned to this record remains unverified, but is accepted. Frisland or Friesland Head is not noted as such on the 1999 edition of the OS 1:50,000 map, but the name presumably applies to the headland between Gortan Bay (to the SW) and Friesland Bay (to the SE), on the SE side of Coll.
