Legend has it that Loch Sloy became Clan MacFarlane’s war/gathering cry in connection with one of most memorable of the MacFarlane exploits that took place about a mile from the head of Loch Sloy.
Two hundred Athole men were returning from the south with a large herd of lifted cattle. The MacFarlanes had got word of their coming, but they allowed them to proceed unopposed till they reached the meadow beyond the loch, where as the MacFarlanes had anticipated, the cattle were allowed to feed while their drivers lay down to rest, congratulating themselves that they had escaped the attentions of the MacFarlane men. But the old chief of MacFarlane and sixty of his men were close in pursuit. Arrived at the head of the loch, MacFarlane placed forty of his men in the hollow between the loch and the meadow where the Athole men were resting, while he himself mounted on his white pony took the other twenty and proceeded to a knoll which overlooked the meadow beyond. Standing on this knoll he then directed his twenty men to pass in single file from behind the knoll on which he stood to another some distance away. Then as soon as he was hidden by the second knoll from the sight of the Athole men, each MacFarlane returned in the shelter of the hollow by the loch side and emerged once more from behind the knoll on which the old chief stood, thus giving the appearance of a constant stream of men.
The Athole men seeing such a large number of enemies apparently trying to work round and cut off their escape, were seized with panic, and fled in confusion, leaving their booty in the hands of the wily old MacFarlane.
