Legend has it that the greatest Scottish warrior of all, Fionn mac Cumhaill – also known as Fingal – was walking across Islay with his two massive hounds: Bran and Sceolang.
Fionn, who was possessed of supernatural powers and superhuman strength, hoisted one of the standing stones at Ardbeg and threw it half-way across the island – into the depths of Loch Indaal – for his dogs to fetch back. The splash made by the stone stirred the dark sands at the bottom of the Loch, and with them stirred from his thousand year sleep the sleeping form of the sea-dragon Kranna Dubh.
Kranna surged up from the depths and swam to the shore at Bowmore to meet with Fionn in combat. A fierce battle ensued, ending with Kranna lurching back into the Loch, mortally wounded by Fionn's magical sword, Mac a'Luin, his dark blood seeping into the waters.
To this day, the sea-dragon's image appears on the Bowmore label. And it is said when the sun sets, Loch Indaal turns red with his blood – and that local mothers scold their children severely, if ever they catch them pitching stones into the Loch.

相傳蘇格蘭最偉大的戰士費恩‧馬克‧康黑爾(Fionn mac Cumhaill)領著兩頭巨大的獵犬班恩(Bran)與史奧靈(Sceolang)橫行艾雷島。
費恩擁有超能力,力大無窮,有一次在島南叫雅柏(Ardbeg)的地方提起一塊大石,投越半個艾雷島,擲至英岱爾灣(Loch Indaal)的深處,讓他的兩頭獵犬取回。但石頭激起巨浪,撥動海床的黑沙,把已沉睡千年的海龍克娜德巴(Kranna Dubh)喚醒。
