Transcript of a Police Report submitted to Tobermory Procurator Fiscal by Finlay Fraser (Police Constable, Tiree) charging Neil Lamont with malicious mischief on 12 October 1861. Lamont (merchant and cattle dealer, Cornaig) is accused of injuring Lauchlan McLean (farmer, Crosh [Croit na Croise, Kilmoluaig]) while riding a horse on the main road between Gott and Ballaphetrish. Statements are provided from:

Lachlan McLean (farmer, Crosh [Croit na Croise, Kilmoluaig])

The location of ‘Crosh’ is likely to be Croit na Croise in Kilmoluaig (see 1861 census).
