“Cha tein ‘e chaidh sios gun leus,
A chithear, ‘s a leumas o’n t-suil;
Cha dhealan, a chaillear, ‘s an speur.
Chaidh esa ‘bha treun air chùl."
The translation of the Epitaph is the following:
There isn’t a fire that goes down without a flame,
That can be seen, and leaps from the eye;
Not lightening, which is lost in the heavens;
He, who was strong, has perished.
(From ‘Cath Loduinn, Duan II’, The Poems of Ossian)
