Emhain Abhlach

'Emhain of the Apple Trees'
Emhain Ebhlach

A paradisiacal land that is usually identified as the Isle of Arran. It also has associations with Manannán mac Lir, god of the sea, whose home was said to have been the Isle of Man.

Both islands have equal claim to be Emhain Abhlach, and, as is usual, no evidence exists to support the claim of one over the other. Geoffrey of Monmouth later associated this realm with Avalon.
