008 A small scotch yew near "Stuckd-an-tiobairt" traditionally reported to have been the resting place of King Robert 1st, while on one of his expeditions. It is of very remarkable appearance and seems to be very ancient. The root has so interwoven itself with a small rock as to give it the appearance of being composed of stone. The trunk is about 4 feet in diameter and the branches cover a space of 90 feet in circumference. The tree is about 15 feet in height, but, as the branches are regularly pruned with a view to its spreading, its growth is stunted.
