Summary - The Tiree factor tried to cheat the duke.

There was a man in Cornaig named Neil MacLean who built boats. He built a boat for the factor and, when it was ready, the factor paid him. The factor then asked the duke for money to pay for the boat, but asked him for more money than he had paid. The duke wondered at this, as another man had bought a boat recently and he had expected them to be the same price. The duke found out that the factor was trying to cheat him, and as a result the factor had to clear out of Island House.
