I don't believe that fuil or fhuil should be spelt with an accent over the u. I can't find dictionary entries that list it as fùil, and even the audio recording appears to suggest that the vowel should be short.

You are right, it should be fuil, an fhuil. The contributors know about it and it will get fixed but might take a while, the tips for the Animals skill state:

CORRECTION - Fuil (blood) is spelled with an accent on the 'u' in this skill, which is incorrect. We have earmarked it to be fixed, but that requires us to create a new version of the current tree. As soon as we are able to, we will change this. The pronunciation in the sound files is still correct. Thanks for your patience!
