Information:A slight gully in the middle of Craignish, just south of Onamul. Men would hide in the ruins in the evening and wait for cormorants returning south to roost. If the weather was wild they would cut accross the middle of Craignish rather than fly around the outside, and they could be shot more easily - WMcL.
