Summary - Iain Mòr na Pacaid.

Iain Mòr na Pacaid ran a whisky supply between Skye and Tobermory. He and his companion, Donald MacKinnon, were forced ashore by bad weather one night, and went to a house for shelter. It was suppertime, but they were not offered anything. Iain took a potato for each of them, then lit his pipe and passed it to the man of the house. He immediately offered them food. He hadn't had any tobacco for a fortnight.
