Scope and Contents

Story about how Loch Awe was created probably collected from Duncan MacNiven, retired schoolmaster, Airds, Earra GhĂ idheal/Argyllshire. The story tells how [Bera] went away on a visit and having 'stayed too long' discovered on her return that 'the lid of the well was off + Loch Awe the result'. She then sang a song beginning 'A sniomh mo chuigeil'. Text has been scored through as if transcribed elsewhere.
