Carraig an Adhairc owes its title to the following. -During the time of the Fianna of Erinn the famous hunting warriors hunted in the Scornac district. An excellent view of the countryside is obtained from a plateau of rock in Scornac. Around its summit in ancient days the people assembled to watch the marvellous hunts of Finn's warriors.
Another rocky land mark of Scornac is known as "Carraig Dhá Leath". A great split running vertically down the face of the rock, almost divides it - hence the name "Dhá Leath".
