Creag Sgaire

A rock on the Lundale moor named after Zachary Macaulay. He was the leader of a band of Macaulays from Uig who had stolen cattle from Morrisons in Ness. The Morrisons caught up with Zachary and two kinsmen whilst they slept under the shelter of a rock. They attacked them from above and killed them. The rock is known to this day as Creag Sgaire.
