Story collected from Duncan Cameron, police officer, Tobar Mhoire/Tobermory, Muile/Isle of Mull, entitled 'Nes' [neas or stoat] telling how at Airi-miseig [Àridh Miseig], he took a spade to a stoat's den [còs] but found nothing. He had gone about a mile further on when he heard the stoat hissing at his heel and it followed him despite him throwing stones at it.

Eon said he would not sleep in case the stoat mistook him for Duncan.
