Eaglais Bhreugach
Eaglais Bhreugach
Eaglais Bhreugach (Bhreagach on the OS maps), or The False Church, is a gigantic boulder about 40ft high that sits on the east shore of Trotternish. It is holed right through by a cave in such a way that the origin of its name is pretty obvious. From inside or out, it does have a strong resemblance to a church. It is said that it has been used as a place of ceremony in times past, though the rites were not of a Christian variety. One story is of the roasting of live cats, an activity that summons an appearance from the devil. In this case it was apparently successful.
