"The site of Kilbride is not visible from the road, but near it, on the glebe of the new parish church of Torran, stands the Annat Stone. This is an immense boulder of upright shape and of it the Brahn Seer prophesied: 'Here the raven will drink his fill of blood from the Stone.' The Stone is reputed to have once been thirty feet high but now it is five or six - anyhow, above ground. Like the Temple of Annait in Waternish, this Annat Stone is a mystery. Near it is Tobar an ha'annait, the Well of Annat."

- Otta F. Swire, Skye: The Island and its Legends, 1961, p. 222.
