Thanks, Skoosh. So if I'm understanding this correctly, Isobel was born at Teaninver, a place at the mouth of a river or burn.

Hold on, I've just realised her record is for her birth, not baptism, recorded in the Parish Kincardine (Ross) and Croick. Does that help me narrow down a location?

The birth record (Parish Kincardine (Ross) and Croick) of Isobel's next sibling, brother Donald McLeod, has the same information:
McLeod Donald, to John McLeod and Margaret McGregor at Teaninver born 9th Sept 1811.

Jang, there's a place called Inverhouse on the Ross-shire side of the river opposite Invershin.  A hybrid name meaning roughly the same as Teaninver. The folk to contact will be the local Heritage Society. Kyle of Sutherland Heritage Society, on Facebook.
