Identifier: Coll-97/CW178/32

Scope and Contents

List of vocabulary and place-names possibly from Siorrachd Pheairt/Perthshire, including 'Aoibhran = Ankle'; 'Cleirmid = strum the air without the words = Canntaireachd'; 'Trian - near Comrie = Cimirie' and 'Rua-thuill = Ruchal'; [Trian, Cuimridh/Comrie and Water of Ruchill]. Some words, which are apparently place-names do not have English equivalents written next to them. There is also a note for 'Hollingsworth, New Mains Inchture' and what would appear to be train times 'From Comrie 10-10 12-18'. Text has been scored through as if transcribed elsewhere.
