Information:The Gaelic Otherworld, ed Ronald Black, p252:
A young man, sleeping alone in a house in which a shop was kept by his father at Scarinish, Tiree, one night felt such an oppression on his chest that he could not sleep, and heard noises as if there were people in the house. He got up and made a thorough search, but found no-one. Before long there was a change in the occupancy in the house.
