Sorry, no. B is more correctly known as T, though I am sure Barlinne has had many people whose Christian names started with the same letter as their surname.

Now I've found it via Google. Seems like cheating as I wouldn't have had a cat in hell's chance otherwise. I couldn't have worked out an English children's programme clue let alone a Scottish one.
Balamory is the B, Tobermory, and PP, SS and JJ are Penny Pocket, Susie Sweet and Josie Jump.
