Scope and Contents

Story entitled 'Iain Lom' collected from Duncan MacNiven, 'old schoolmaster', Cnoc na h-Aird, Taigh an Uillt/Taynuilt, Earra GhĂ idheal/Argyllshire which tells how the wife of a Campbell of Glasaruith in Killmhich[eil] [Kilmichael Glassary, Earra GhĂ idheal/Argyllshire] was being harrassed by a 'cruiner' [tax-collector] in her husband's absence. Having complained to her husband he lay in wait for the tax-collector and when the tax-collector harrassed his wife he stabbed him but then fled north. He lived in Keppoch for seven years as a MacDonald while she lived with her family, MacCalmans, in Barra-Glass and eventually joined him in Keppoch. The story concludes that Donald Campbell lived in Glena ghlasarai and made himself Mac-a-ghlasaraich. Text has been scored through as if transcribed elsewhere.
