Information:Before 1886 there was a tairbh sligeach (a shell-covered bull), a bull with a warty eruption on its skin, in the township. All his offspring had the same complaint and they were put down and buried at An Iodhlann Mhòr. They could still hear the lowing of the calves for their mothers from underground. It was put down to sgoil dhubh (witchcraft) - Alasdair Sinclair, Greenhill, 6/1995.
