This place has been examined by Dr Schoular, Dublin, Mr McAdam [probably Robert Shipboy McAdam 1808-1895], Belfast and the Rev. Mr McBride, Kamesburgh, and some stone coffins and human bones were found; the two former gentlemen wished to test some passages in the Annals of Ulster, or the 'Four Masters', relative to three brothers called McGillichiaran, who left Ireland at an early period, and settled at Glecknabae. The three brothers appear to have been buried here, and possibly their offspring. The Sharps of the West Highlands have descended from one of th brothers.
