Scope and Contents

Story about the death of Rob Tighearna [Robert Stewart of Appin], that while 'the whole of Appin' attended his funeral, his son Dual [Dùghall] [Dugald Stewart of Appin] did not but instead stayed at home.

A piper called MacInnes from Glencoe played for the funeral from Leitir Shiuna to Aird Chattan [Leitir Sìuna/Lettershuna, Àird Chatain/Ardchattan, Earra Ghàidheal/Argyllshire], a distance of 15 miles: 'He was immensely strong but died soon afterwards'.
