Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo on chlo-bhualadh aig Ealasaid Shutharlanach, 'A Guide to the Pictish Stones', foillsichte an toiseach an 1897. Tha e air a leughadh an seo le Elizabeth Parker.

'Where were the Picts?

The borders between the Picts, Britons and Angles south of the Clyde/Forth valley and, after AD 500, the Scots from Ireland who settled in Argyll, were fairly fluid. But the heart of Pictland was centred in Tayside, Grampian and Highland regions, the territory north and north-east of the Antonine wall including Orkney and Shetland but excluding Strathclyde. Before AD 500, they ruled as far as the Outer Hebrides. As late as c. 565 the Scottish saint Columba thought it appropriate to ask permission from the Pictish King Brude in Inverness to establish his Scottish monastery in Iona. Isolated symbol stones can still be seen in Skye, Wester Ross and Argyll, but the majority are to be found east of Drumalban, that great spiny watershed formed by mountains that extend the length of Scotland nearer the west coast.'

A chionn 's gur ann à Arcaibh a bha a h-athair agus à Fiobha a bha a màthair, tha Elizabeth Sutherland ag ràdh gur e tè Chruithneach a th' innte fhèin. An dèidh dhi trèanadh a dhèanamh aig Oilthigh Dhùn Èidinn, gus am biodh i na h-oibriche sòisealta, phòs i fear clèireach Easbaigeach agus rinn i a dachaigh ann an ceithir paraistean Albannach, a' fuireach mu dheireadh sa Chananaich air an Eilean Dubh.

Nuair a leig an duine aice dheth a dhreuchd ann an 1982, ghabh Ealasaid thairis Taigh-tasgaidh a' Ghroam ann an Ros Mhaircnidh agus 's i a rinn e na ionad nan Cruithneach. 'S e a h-obair air Coinneach Odhar, Fiosaiche Bhrathainn, a dh'fhàg i air a meas na neach-eachdraidh urramach. Bha an cuspair seo gu sònraichte iomchaidh oir 's ann ann am baraille teàrr aig Rubha na Cananaich a fhuair Coinneach Odhar bàs.

Bho chionn ghoirid tha i air tòiseachadh ag obair air eachdraidh na sgìre san Eilean Dubh le sreath de bhileagan airson Clo-bhualadh an Eilein Duibh.
