Scope and Contents Story probably collected from Kenneth Morrison, Trien/Trithean, An t-Eilean Sgitheanach/Isle of Skye about two MacQueen brothers at Talamh-sgeir [Talaisgeir/Talisker]. One of them had a colt, which the other one wanted to buy for twenty pounds Scots. The brother refused but said he would take a pound sterling for it which was worth more than twenty pounds Scots. Following the story is a list of monetary values, which is incomplete, but includes 'Plang = 1 3/4 d' and 'Bonn a h-oc = 1/8 of ½d'.
