Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo o 'Culloden Tales' le Hugh Allison, foillsichte an 2007. Tha e air a leughadh an seo leis an ùghdar.

'The roll of the storyteller, the Seanachaidh, here at Culloden is essential for both the giving and receiving of tales. There is a need, in such places, for someone who sees it as important to learn the stories - old and new - and who can choose which stories to tell, to which visitors, in order to make the very ground sing, and the place have proper meaning and significance. I do not know how often, or if ever, I manage to do that, but I try. I do that because I feel that I owe it to the distinguished storytelling family that I follow, on the battlefield.

Mrs Annabell Cameron (nee Bell Macdonald) was the last inhabitant of Leanach Cottage; the last of her line to guide people around the Moor. She was long-lived, and a Battlefield Guide most of her days. Leanach Cottage was left empty after Bell died in 1912, aged approximately 83 years.

Her father, James Macdonald of Leanach, was a guide on the field before her, and was the man called upon in 1846, to guide notable visitors around the Moor on the 100th anniversary of the battle. A decade earlier, in 1835, when a new road was driven through the graves, it was said in a local journal, 'James Macdonald, however, who lived in the old house of Leanach and saw the work done, said the bones had all been reinterred.'

Bell's grandfather, also James Macdonald (but of Culchunaig), was an even earlier guide, (sometimes described by the old term - local cicerone).

The mother of that older James Macdonald was still living with her parents, at Culchunaig, in 1746. She was baking, on the day of the battle, when a Highlander who had lost his hand rushed in, and cauterised the bleeding stump by pressing it on the hot stones of the fire-place.

These five generations have done an excellent job in setting the standard, (to which I have continually aspired), for storytellers on the site.'

Rugadh is thogadh Hugh G Allison ann an Loch Abar. Ann an 1977 chaidh e gu Oilthigh Ghlaschu ag ionnsachadh mu Chruinn-eòlas is mu Chlach-eòlas, agus greis às dèidh sin (2008) cheumnaich e le BA on Oilthigh Fosgailte, an Open University. Bha e ag obair an toiseach aig Bùird Thurasachd, an uair sin aig Comhairle Sgìre Inbhir Narann, na Oifigear dhaibh bho 1983 airson Turasachd is Fèisteas.

Phòs Ùisdean ann an 1986, agus thogadh an dithis nighean aige ann an Inbhir Narann. Dh'fhuirich e aig a' Chomhairle tro ath-eagrachadh riaghaltais ionadail, ag obair aig Comhairle na Gàidhealtachd gu ruig 2000. Rè 'n àm sin chuidich e gus a' chiad Gheamachan a-riamh a bh' aig Moscow a chur air bhonn, agus chaidh a chur air fo-fhastadh gu àireamh de phròiseactan sa Chuimrigh agus ann an Ameireaga a Tuath.

Ann an 2001 ghabh e obair le Urras Nàiseanta na h-Alba ann an Cuil Lodair. Fhad 's a bha e leis an Urras bha e a' stiùireadh an dà chuid, Àrach Bhlàir Chuil Lodair agus Caisteal Bhrothaigh. Thòisich e cuideachd ri stiùireadh luchd-turais o na bàtaichean chuairtean-mara, agus sgrìobh e trì leabhraichean: 'Roots of Stone' (2004) a' coimhead air farsaingeachd an 2000 bliadhna mu dheireadh de dh'eachdraidh na h-Alba, gu h-àraid an ceangal eadar eachdraidh teaghlaich is eachdraidh nàiseanta; 'Rivers Running Far' (2005) a tha a' sgrùdadh sgaoileadh sluagh na h-Alba, gu h-àraid adhbharan is mar a dh'èirich dhaibh, agus aig an aon àm ag innse mar a rinn Ùisdean gealltainn mar Iar-Shiorram ann an Kentucky fhad 's a bha e ris an rannsachadh aige; 'Culloden Tales' (2007) a tha na eachdraidh den bhatal a tha fìrinneach is furasta ri leughadh, le sgeulachdan on fheadhainn a thadhail air a' mhòintich.
