Scope and Contents

Story collected from Keith Macdonald, Scarista [Sgarasta, Na Hearadh/Isle of Harris], that he saw 'most distinctly' the walls of Bogha an Teampuill, which are submerged opposite Scarista beag [Sgarasta Bheag] and that 'the tangles were growing to a great extent over it'. 'He saw it to his great astonishment' as his hooks had got entangled with the long seaweed and he noticed lime shells on the seaweed which came up with his hooks.
