Scope and Contents

Story about Comhail Mhic Leoid [Clach MhicLeòid, Na Hearadh/Isle of Harris] that it was where MacLeod signalled to the people of Tarasaigh/Taransay that they had to come and pay their rent. The story continues by describing the 'Ord bhairneach' which an old woman had and which when striking the limpets broke in three. The three fragments were scattered one [presumably] at Clach MhicLeòid, one at Steinegri [Stangrigary] and the third at Aoi [Uidh], now known as Clach an t-sagairt.
