Scope and Contents

Story about Taogai MacCuinn [MacQueen] probably collected from Ranald MacDonald, sheep farmer, Tarasaigh/Taransay, that he lived in Trotarnish, Skye [TrĂ²ndairnis/Trotternish, An t-Eilean Sgitheanach/Isle of Skye] and that it is from him that all the MacQueen families in Skye and Uibhist/Uist descend. He is described as having been litigious and once put in a plea about corn which was damaged and he got off the charge by saying that the damage was done by seals rolling on the corn.
