Tha a' chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo o chaibideil 16 de 'A Hundred Years in the Highlands' le Osgood MacCoinnich, foillsichte an toiseach ann an 1922. Tha e air a leughadh le sgoilear o Àrd Sgoil a' Phluic.

'How well do I remember our country when all the lunatics were at large. There were no asylums and there was no cure except the great and only possible one of Loch Maree. The cure was still in vogue in my time. The patient was brought to the loch and put into a boat which made at once for the Holy Island, (Eilean Maree). Then a long rope was tied round the unlucky person's waist, and he or she was suddenly dropped into the water and dragged behind the boat three times round the island, taking...the way of the sun being a very important part of the cure. The crew rode for all they were worth, and if the patient was still alive and capable of swallowing anything, he was landed on the island, and as if he had not got already more than sufficient water inside him, he was made to swallow a lot more from...Saint Malruba's Holy Well. The awful shock and the fear of having it repeated did, I believe, occasionally subdue some of the most violent cases, but it was a cruel ordeal and quite an example of "kill or cure."

B' e mac dhan uachdaran Ghàidhealach, Sir Francis Mackenzie, 5mh iar-bharan Gheàrrloch, a bh' ann an Osgood Mackenzie. Tha e ainmeil oir 's e a chruthaich Gàrraidhean Inbhir Iùbh agus 's e an t-ùghdar aig 'A hundred years in the Highlands'. Rugadh e sa Bhreatainn Bhig ann an 1842, àite Ceilteach air an robh Sruth a' Chamais a' bualadh, agus choltaich e e ri cost an iar na h-Alba.

Tha pàirt de 'A hundred years in the Highlands' na chuimhneachan teaghlaich, a' sealltainn beatha nan uachdaran Gàidhealach, agus tha taobh eile dheth a tha na dhealbh de bheul-aithris is de dhualchas na Gàidhealtachd.

Ann an 1862 fhuair Osgood Inbhir Iùbh mar oighreachd. 'S e rubha maol, fosgailte a bh' ann agus cha robh air ach aon chraobh. Gus an do bhàsaich e ann an 1922 rinn e tòrr spàirn agus chuir e mach tòrr airgid gus an tionndaidheadh e an t-àite bochd seo gu bhith na lios ainmeil, far an robh iomadh lus annasach a' fàs a thàinig o thìrean cèin cho fad air falbh ris na Himalayas. An dèidh bàs Osgood, lean an obair sa Ghàrradh agus ann an 1952 chaidh Lios Inbhir Iùbh an toirt seachad do dh'Urras Nàiseanta na h-Alba.
