Colvend is a small village situated at the south end of White Loch and close to the Solway Coast. (https://www.visitscotland.com/info/towns-villages/colvend-p239201)

Code:
2655184	Boreland of Colvend	Boreland of Colvend	Boreland of Colvend,Colvend	54.86667	-3.76667	P	PPL	GB	GB	SCT	U2			0		43	Europe/London	2012-01-17


Boreland of Colvend is a farmstead/dwelling in/near the village of Colvend (seen on much older maps as Lochend).

Source (I cannot link directly as it seems to involve JavaScript, but Boreland of Colvend is listed):

If the co-ordinates are for Boreland of Colvend, rather than the village, they may not be close enough to be described as accurate. Colvend is listed as an alternative name but it should be the primary (probably only) name.

I have renamed Lochend to Colvend and added Lochend as historic name.

Best Regards
