I G Whittaker 1998.

The location assigned to this record is essentially tentative. Smaull Point is not noted as such on the 1999 edition of the OS 1:50,000 map, but the name presumably applies to the major promontory of Rubha Lamanais. The farmstead of Smaull (NR26NW 61) lies inland, at NR 21399 68532.

This promontory is situated to the N of Saligo Bay, not Machir Bay as is cited by Whittaker.
