Scope and Contents

Notes on the burial place at Ceillegridh [Ceilegraigh/Killegray], an island close to Easaigh/Ensay, described as a 'pretty isle with a good house where the factor sometimes lives'. The burying place is noted as being at Ru-an teampuil [Teampull na b' Annait] on the north point of the island 'on a ledge washed by the waves'. There is a small ruin there and the soil is so shallow that 'the coffins rest upon the flat rock. The ends of the grave app[ear] fr[om] the wash away of the soil...Altog[ether] curious.'
