This paper will provide new analysis of the version of this Finn-cycle tale recorded in the ‘Staffa Collection’, an early 19th-century manuscript from Muile ~ Mull and Ulbha ~ Ulva (NLS Adv.MS.73.2.1). The paper will include particular attention to the scribe, Iain MacMhuirich, and the tale’s place-names.
