We sat out after dinner for Breacacha, the family seat of the Laird of Col, accompanied by the young laird [...]. It is called Breacacha, or the Spotted Field, because in the summer it is enamelled with clover and daisies, as young Col told me. We passed by a place where there is a very large stone, I may call it a rock: -- 'a vast weight for Ajax'. The tradition is, that a giant threw such another stone at his mistress, up to the top of a hill, at a small distance; and that she in return, threw this mass down to him. It was all in sport.
