There is natural recess in the rocks of the shore at Baluaig in Tiree to which tradition has given the name of the Bed of the Fairy Dog. It is not far from Crogan beach, already mentioned as a place where the Fairy dog was heard, and opposite the Gràdor, a low-water rock over which the sea breaks with terrible violence in stormy weather. The loneliness and wildness of the spot might well cause it to be associated with tales of superstition. (Footnote 244)

Footnote 244: The place is at the east end of Balephetrish Bay.
