Scope and Contents

Story, probably collected from Donald MacColl, brocair (fox hunter) Glencreran, Argyll [Earra GhĂ idheal], about the daughter of [Cameron] of Lochiel, who was married to Campbell of Barcaldine and then married again but was determined her son, Cailean Rua [Cailean Ruadh or Colin Campbell], would have Barcaldine [Am Barra Calltainn, Earra GhĂ idheal]. She achieved this by clearing several lands 'unmercifully'. Cailean Ruadh was shot because he was hard on his tenants. When Lochiel's daughter died her brother attended the funeral but saw the ghost of her son. She was buried at Bealach an Deilg in Barcaldine and the storyteller said 'It is a poor thing if she has now opened her eyes in hell'.
