Information:"There are three mineral springs on the north-west side of this island, which appear to be impregnated with iron. One of them is called in Gaelic from this circumstance 'Tobar an Iaruinn' or the iron well, and the rocks in the neighbourhood are believed, from their colour and weight, to contain more or less of that material." p 201. [Possibly in Barrapol where there is a vein of iron ore - JH].
