Information:There are three stones on this hillock - one of them red. One day there was a funeral at Kirkapol. There was a lot of drinking and an argument developed. One man chased another over the Sliabh Ghot and battered him to death with a lunan (pole used to carry coffins) at Cnoc nan Torraidhean. The rock is still stained with his blood - JGMcL.
