heitr var hafsætrum
suðr af sæskíðum
Bygðir ódygðar búmanna brunnu; lífgalli hallar var heitr hafsætrum. Feigir fleinþollar fellu suðr, sóttir herdróttum svanteigar af sæskíðum.
The dwellings of faithless farmers burned; the life-harm of the hall [FIRE] was hot in the sea-settlements. Doomed spear-firs [WARRIORS] fell in the south, attacked by the war-bands of the swan-field [SEA] from the sea-skis [SHIPS].
 af sæskíðum ‘from the sea-skis [SHIPS]’: So NN §3152. The Norw. troops had beached their ships and advanced onto the Scottish mainland. Skj B takes this to mean that the Scots fell on their ships, but no Scottish ships are mentioned in the prose.
