Sgriob na Callich
Sgriob na Callich
The Sgriob na Callich was caused by a witch in a hurry. She was hunting on the paps when she noticed the man she fancied escaping from the island, so she slid down the slope to chase him, creating this long line of stones. Some people prefer another story, that this is a medial moraine caused by a glacier which split into two arms, one either side of the mountain, and then rejoined. Each arm picked up rock debris at its edge and when they merged, this debris resulted in a line down the middle of the glacier, which remained when the glacier melted. Take your pick.
