Scope and Contents

Story entitled 'Caran mac Fitheall' collected from Ann Gunn, probably Ann MacDonald, daughter of Angus Gunn, crofter, Dail bho Thuath/North Dell, Nis/Ness, Eilean Le├▓dhais/Isle of Lewis. The story is about a man with three sons who builds temples and castles but who does not trust his wife while he is away working and wishes to test his sons. The story is incomplete possibly because, as Carmichael notes, Ann is 'a woman who talks like a machine'.

Dates: 27 October 1873
