Information:This is the beach west of Dun Mor. There is a turf and stone dyke which runs accross the head. The sides are steep and the cattle would not be able to climb out. The herds boy put the cattle down there at night, after they had had a drink at Loch an Fhaing. Tommy MacKinnon, Vaul, 6/2013. [this is quite different in location to LMcK, but there are a number of other supporting details which make this convincing].
