    Re: Loch Awe
    James Mackinley in his Folklore of Scottish Lochs and Springs (1893), refers to John MacCulloch, the author of "A Description of the Western Islands of Scotland” who ‘found the belief in the water-bull a living faith among the people, notably among the dwellers beside Loch Rannoch and Loch Awe. He tells of a farmer who employed his sons to search a certain stream for one of these creatures, while the farmer himself carried a gun loaded with sixpences to be discharged when the monster appeared, silver alone having any effect on such beasts.’
