Gometray Isle

   GOMETRAY ISLE, in the parish of Kilninian, county of Argyll. It is a small basaltic island of the Hebrides, lying between the isles of Mull and Staffa, and separated from Ulva by such a narrow sound that, from most points of view, they appear as if one island. There is a harbour on the north, and another on the south side, both of which are safe and tolerably commodious. The inhabitants rear cattle and horses, and manufacture kelp.
