There are also two stones or obelisks of large size; the one at Balmartin, near the centre of the parish, named Carracrom, regarding the erection of which tradition is silent. The other is opposite the island of Kirkebost. It is called clach mhore a chi, and is said by universal tradition to have been erected to commerate a battle of the same name; but when or by whom fought, I have not been able to ascertain.
