Aigash Isle

   AIGASH ISLE, in the parish of Kiltarlity, county of Inverness. It is formed by a division into two branches of the river Beauty, and is of an oval figure, and about a mile and a half in circumference, comprising an area of fifty acres. It is chiefly whinstone, and rises, in a slope, about a hundred feet above the level of the water; and being covered with natural oak, birch, alder, and other trees, it presents, with the surrounding rocks, a beautiful and picturesque appearance. The islet communicates with the main land by a bridge.
