Easa suc Con

The name of a small waterfall at Scorrybreac, near Portree in Skye, that forms in the rock a natural trough about the size of a person. A daughter of Lochlin, who suffered from an incurable disease (possibly mùr, leprosy), learned of a prophecy that said that her cure was to be found in a northern island. She came to this waterfall and had the trough emptied, then lay in it until it again filled, and was cured.
