Information:At one time there was no fence between Crois and Balevullin and the cattle were getting in to the Crois fields. The Kilmoluaig crofters decided to put a fence up and tried to get a party to work on it. Some were always making excuses and on one occasion the crofter's wife (this was in the 1930s) told the fencers that her husband had an infected finger. The dune has been called The Dune of the Finger ever since. On fence line between Crois and Balevullin - AMcD.
