Identifier: Coll-97/CW114/43

Scope and Contents

Place-name notes and story probably collected from Roderick MacNeil, aged 88, crofter, Miùghlaigh/Mingulay about Uamh na h-aonaig and Uamh-Ghàrsa [Uamh na h-Aoneig and possibly Uamh Guarsaigh]. Uamh na h-Aonaig is 'said to come down half way to the bay', while Uamh Gharsa [on] Sanndray [Sanndraigh/Sandray] is said to go in on the west end of the strand and come out opposite Pabay [Pabaigh]. The story tells how a dog once went in one end and came out of the other 'devoid of hair. The foul air took off his hair.'
