That would be the root of McAdam if the story of Adam Mac Geargair was true.
Though as usual nothing is clear, the Greirson turn out not to be related to the
Mac Geargair of Siol Alpine as the legend describes. Though I now see at the
MacAdam project a possible M222 from Waterhead which may be the one East
Ayrshire and another who isn't M222+.
