 Item
Identifier: Coll-97/CW120/162

Scope and Contents

Story probably collected from Donald MacColl, foxhunter, Glencreran, Earra GhĂ idheal/Argyllshire, about the Duke of Argyll and hospitality he had received from two MacColl brothers. One was unwelcoming while the other was hospitable and killed a cow [for eating]. To this one the duke gave the titles to Corra Bheinn and Glasdruim [Glasdrum, Earra GhĂ idheal/Argyllshire], one for mutton and the other for grazing. At Airds his dogs were not well cared for and fled during the night and he remarked how his dogs had found their way to the 'generous hand'.
