The name is marked on James Dorret's 1750 General Map of Scotland and Islands thereto belonging. In the 1834-45 account by Rev John McDougal, minister of the area, he describes how people going to the low country (south) had to climb the "Duke of Argyle's bowling green". This was part of a route called the "Duke's Path" which started on the shore of Loch Goil and ended at a place called Mark on the shore of Loch Long where you crossed the loch by boat.
The name is an anglicisation of the Gaelic, which may be consciously humorous, as there is very little flat land. The name originally referred to a small grazing ground on the south east side of the peninsula above Mark but is sometimes used to describe the peninsula.
