A place beyond Kessock Ferry, near the point of Kilmuir, where there is a cave close to the sea beach. In this cave a little water fall down from the roof in drop on the stones below. These drops were considered a complete cure for deafness, if properly applied. The patient lies down, and lies his head on the flags, and let the water fall first into the one ear and then the other. After some formalities are gone through, the patient rises, and the deafness is believed to be gone.
