087 A small gravelly point jutting into Loch Etive about half a mile west of Ardchattan House. The name means Carswell's Point - Carswell was bishop of Argyll and the Isles, and resided at Carnasery Castle in the Parish of Kilmartin. He died A.D. 1575, but before his death he had given orders that his body should be laid in the Priory of Ardchattan. They were accordingly borne to Rudha nan Carn; but while being taken across the loch the storm, which had been raging all day, became so violent as to take the boat from its regular path and force it upon this point. Since that time it has born the above name.
