Ullin

.

Fingal’s aged bard. (Ossian.) Lord Ullin’s Daughter. A ballad by Campbell. She eloped with the chief of Ulva’s Isle, and, being pursued, induced a boatman to row them over Lochgyle during a storm. The boat was overwhelmed just as Lord Ullin and his retinue reached the lake. In an agony of distress, he now promised to forgive the fugitives, but it was too late: “the waters wild rolled oʹer his child, and he was left lamenting.”
