A party of Mull (Muile) men set out once on a predatory expedition. Their destination was the island of Luing, and the port they made for was Camus-cairble, (Port Mary). The night was advanced before they arrived. There was design in this ; for these raids were, for obvious reasons, conducted with all possible secrecy. They had not far to go in quest of prey ; for Marquis, the tenant of Baile-chuain, had a goodly fold of cattle. On Marquis's cattle, accordingly, they laid unsparing hands. Having put on board their barge as many of them as it could contain, they had one over, which, they slaughtered for immediate use. While they were flaying this cow, Marquis, who followed them, and was watching them from a height close at hand, discharged an arrow, which pierced the back of the hand of one of the men engaged in flaying. Apprehending an attack in force, the marauders took to their boats, and put to sea without delay, leaving the slaughtered cow on the shore. As a smart breeze of north wind was blowing at the time, they hugged the shore as closely as they safely could, in order to take advantage of its shelter. Marquis, anticipating the course that they would take, crossed Cuan Ferry, hastened on to the north end of Easdale Sound, where it was narrowest, and hid himself among the rocks on the shore, at a point which is to this day called Rudha Mhic Mharcuis i.e., Marquis Point. He waited there patiently till the Mull men came forward. When they were within range, he threw in among them rapidly arrow after arrow, and that with such fatal effect that not one of them escaped with life. He then secured their boat with all that it contained.
