Summary

Fraoch sent to a certain island to get berries to cure his illness.

Fraoch was married to a girl in Tìr a' Ghoill whose mother had a notion for him. He became ill, and his wife's mother said that red berries from a tree in Eilean Mhàin would cure him. He went to get some, but she sent him back to uproot the tree. When he did so, a snake came out of it. Fraoch swam back to Tìr a' Ghoill and fought the beast on the shore. Both were killed.
