Scottish boy names

Not far off having a boy and we just can't agree on names or find something we love. I find girls names soooo much easier!

We'd like something not overly popular (so not Logan, Harris, Finlay, Alexander etc)

Some names we've considered:
Ruairidh (p/n roo-ree)
Coll (I like, him not so much)
Struan (I'm not so keen)
Alasdair (he's not keen)
Conall

Blair - we both quite like this but would love to hear opinions on using it with s/n Muir

Feel free to provide other options :-)

DS2 is Darach (Gaelic for oak tree). We also thought about Torin.

Calum, Angus, Hamish, Ian, Bruce

Cameron. Not very popular and can be shortened to Cam which I think is a nice nn.

Blair is nice but I'm not mad on it with your surname. To me there's not enough syllables. (Assuming I'm pronouncing your surname right?!)

Word of caution about Ruairidh - I know one, spelled Ruaridh, and it's a nightmare. No one ever knows how to spell it, and his version is a more standard spelling compared to the one you have there, and people who see it before they hear it never get the pronunciation right - either Roo-ry or Rory.
Ruaridh/Rory/Rhuaridh/Ruari variations are also surprisingly popular when you listen for them. They don't chart too highly because of the spelling variations.

I don't see anything with Blair Muir. Assuming you have a Scottish accent they're not the same sound.

Kenneth - underused name in my opinion, good King name.

PS Please don't call your son "Barra". Awful.

Blair Muir doesn't go. What about:
Campbell Muir
Hamish Muir
Douglas Muir
Donald Muir
two-syllables work best with a one-syllable surname I think... you have a nice surname to work with. When you see your dear little boy you will know his name.
