139 "There is a ruin on the northern banks of that lake called Fionn-chairn
Castle which is pointed out as the residence of Mac Mhic Iain. It stands upon a rock, which rises up from the
waters of the lake on one side, & is all around steep & rugged, without a pathway, so that it is entered by climbing
with some difficulty. It is a square building of small dimensions, having an area in the centre,
surrounded by what appears to have been rooms, or rather cells, one tier above another, & the uppermost of them
roofed in by flags of a large size. Tradition says it was destroyed by fire, & the account given of it's
fall is illustrative of the times." New Statistical Account
