041 "A promontory, or bold abutting headland, on the South side of Lunan Bay, Parish of Inverkeilor. It decends almost sheer down, in precipitous rock to the sea of 270 feet; and it is but a nodular projection of a stretch, several miles in extent, of bold, rocky, and high Coast........ The headland abounds with various species of sea fowls, it makes a fine display of the porphyritic formation of rock, it is distinctly seen at a great distance at sea, and is remarkable as the point northward which, before the year 1793, coal was not permitted to be carried without paying a very heavy duty."
