Mureif, Murray, Murreve

A region of northeast Scotland.

At Moray, Arthur defeated a collection of Picts and Scots at the beginning of his reign. From here, he pushed the barbarian hordes on to the lake called Loch Lomond. Arthur later restored the rule of Moray to King Urien.

Some think that Mureif may be identified with Monreith, but it is usually taken to refer to Moray.
