Uamh Lag nan Capull - (The) cave of the church in the hollow or the cave of the horse hollow. Capull is an old Irish Gaelic spelling for chapel, though the terrain would have been suitable for the rearing of horses. MacLeod translates as the “mare’s hollow”. 5010 7999
Uamh Lag nan Capull No. 1- In this image taken from the west, the landscape is full of placenames and unique topographic features. The cave referred to by this placename is more likely to be the one seen clearly on the centre right foreground. However, the British Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 map places the name nearer the cave just visible between the dyke and large rocks visible on the left foreground of the image. Lag nan Capull, with its precipitous downward slope and large drainage area, is clearly evident above the cliff line, while the peak Scrinadle is obscured by cloud. Finally, the rocks descending into the sea are the beginning of the Rubhachan Ghriogair feature.
