The Massacre of Uamh Fhraing

Story Gallery


This is a fictionalized account of the ‘Uamh Fhraing Massacre’ (the Massacre of St. Francis Cave) on the Isle of Eigg in the sixteenth century. I say ‘fictionalized’ because some new elements are introduced in order to bring to life this horrendous event in the history of the Isle of Eigg, or the history of Scotland for that matter.

I have quite a clear conscience in pursuing this endeavour, as the ‘original’ accounts cannot be considered as primary historical sources, as they were written at least one century after the event (Urquhart & Ellington, 1987: 36).
