It is certainly proving lucky territory for the 26-year-old Ayrshireman. All three of his goals this season - including two telling finishes yesterday - have come in the Highlands.
A goal in the victory against Ross County in August was supplemented by two more yesterday as Partick Thistle's 2-1 victory brought a first defeat for Terry Butcher's side in the Highland capital.
Butcher's team - still second and still four points behind Celtic - were left empty- handed in a match they largely dominated, although the critical, controversially disallowed Aaron Doran goal close to half-time was pivotal.
The furore centred on the linesman's belated decision to flag for an alleged double touch on a corner from Ross Draper.
Draper protested his innocence but none of it could detract from away manager Alan Archibald's pleasure at a restorative first victory since the end of August.
On the disallowed goal, Archibald admitted: "It was a bit bizarre. Our player closest, James Craigen, said the ball had been touched and moved.
"He went to go and get to the ball and the linesman said it hadn't been taken.
"He wasn't allowed to encroach. Fair play to the linesman. He should have taken the decision more quickly, but he showed character to go back and give it."
Archibald, though, lavished praise on his team for grit and spirit in breaking a poor run of results.
"It was a fantastic day's work," he said. "We're absolutely delighted with an excellent away performance.
"They were excellent goals from Doolan. He's had a bit of stick since the start of the season.
"We hadn't scored enough and a lot of the criticism was aimed at Kris, but it isn't just down to him.
"His all-round play was very good and he took his first brilliantly. His second was a slice of luck.
"We've been due a win. We've dropped six points we shouldn't have, but it was a win I felt we merited this time.
"To bounce back from losing a goal in the first half, they showed great character."
Often the flow of play was in Partick faces, but the Maryhill club were impressively slick and sharp on the counter.
Archibald brought back James Craigen for Steven Lawless in the only change from the narrow defeat to Hibernian.
It all opened to script, with Inverness inventive and pressing hard on the front foot.
Yet a sustained pattern of home pressure was disrupted in impressive fashion after 19 minutes.
A mesmerising sequence of passing play by the Jags culminated in a Craigen cutback from the left goal-line.
Doolan's excellent first touch eluded marker Gary Warren, who turned sharply to finish with his left foot.
Controversy flared right on the half-time whistle, with Caley Thistle's "equaliser" chalked off after a consultation between officials.
A short corner between Doran and Draper on the right led to McKay's volley being knocked off the line by Sean Welsh. The ball fell to Doran outside the area and he sent a powerful low drive into the back of the net.
But linesman Stuart Stevenson then told referee Euan Norris that Draper had taken two touches on the short corner.
Inside the first minute of the second half, Doran's free-kick from deep found Warren out-jumping everyone to head the leveller.
But several missed chances came back to haunt the Highlanders with eight minutes remaining as a cross from Aaron Taylor-Sinclair spun off Warren and through the grasp of flailing keeper Dean Brill.
Doolan deserved praise for his instinctive positioning but it was the simplest of finishes as Thistle climb up to seventh in the table with Celtic the next side to visit Firhill.
