Rankin won, and the Englishman went away. He returned, however, next year to be once more defeated. They fought, and the Englishman was killed. Rankin got him buried, and raised a cairn over him.
The field was afterwards known as Dail-an-t-Sasunnaich. When the public road was made through the field about 90 years ago, there were some human bones discovered under the cairn. An Irish gentleman was in the habit of visiting Duart. He always came unaccompanied, save by his piper.
He made a point of being there at the annual gathering, or harvest home Deire-bhuana. The Irishman was an excellent performer, and would play tune for tune with Rankin. When Rankin was finished, the Irishman changed his hands on the chanter and played away.
This Rankin could not do, and was so enraged at one of the race being beat that in a fit of passion he took a sword and cut off his little finger. When retiring at night, the Irish piper informed his master what had happened. His master said that when Duart would hear of it, he would kill them both, so when all the rest of the company had retired, the Irish lord and his piper cleared out of the castle and fled.
When Duart got up next morning, he inquired for his guests, and was told they had secretly left the castle. MacLean became suspicious that they had some motive in doing this, so he called his men and pursued the Irish lord and his piper.
He was told they had gone the way of Tobermory. When he got there, he was told they had crossed to Ardnamurchan. He followed and overtook them at Kilchoan, where he killed and buried the two of them.
John Johnston, of Coll, from whom this story was got, heard his uncle playing this lament. As an instance, a Duncan Rankin went to Skye to finish his musical studies. MacCrimmon had a very handsome daughter, and both Duncan and a MacDonald, from Morar, fell in love with her.
The two pupils completed their education at the same time, and went to their respective homes.
Shortly afterwards MacDonald got a boat and crew, and went back to press his suit. The young lady received him in such a manner as to lead him to suppose that he was acceptable to her. Immediately after making the usual inquiries, she excused herself, and left the room.
She afterwards married Rankin, who was then piper to MacLean of Muck. MacLean had a large party one day at dinner. Rankin was indisposed and confined to bed.
When the fortunes of the house of Duart waned, the Rankins transferred their allegiance to the house of Coll.A skeptical look at the welter of nonsense, misinformation, and disinformation surrounding the murder of JFK.
