Kingairloch, a hamlet in Lismore and Appin parish, Argyllshire, at the head of Loch Corry (a western offshoot of Loch Linnhe), 16 miles SW of Ardgour, and 26 SW of Fort William. It has a post office, an inn, a public school, and an Established mission church. From J. A. Forbes, Esq., the estates of Kingairloch and North Corry were purchased in 1881 for £30,140 by John Bell Sherriff, Esq. of Carronvale (b. 1821), who holds 11,205 acres in Argyllshire and 164 in Stirlingshire, valued at £1440 and £363 per annum. The mansion, Kingairloch House, stands near the hamlet.
