Chaidh Montague Ninian Alasdair Brothaigh (1912 - 2003) na cheann-cinnidh air Clann Bhrothaigh air 15 An Gearran 1943, 's e an 25mh Brothaigh. Chaidh fhoghlam aig Eton, agus an uair sin lean e dreuchd cleasaiche agus b' ann nuair a bha e còmhla ri Perth Repertory Company a choinnich e an tè a phòsadh e, Helena Budgeon. Na b' anmoiche leig e seachad an taigh-cluiche agus chuidich e a mhàthair a bhith a' ruith Oighreachd Bhrothaigh. Tron Dàrna Cogaidh rinn e seirbheis leis An Làmhachas Rìoghail agus na b' anmoiche na bheatha bha e na Mhaor Ceartais airson Mhoireibh agus na Iar-leifteanant air Siorrachd Inbhir Nàrann. Ann an 1978, air sgàth adhbharan ionmhais, thàinig air Caisteal Bhrothaigh a thoirt a-null do dh'Urras Nàiseanta na h-Alba.

Anns an earrainn chlaisnich seo bhon phrògram 'Marshall Meets' aig Rèido Linne Mhoireibh tha Ninian a' bruidhinn ri Sam Marshall mu bheatha mar threòraiche luchd-turais.

In this audio extract from the Moray Firth Radio programme 'Marshall Meets' Ninian talks to Sam Marshall about his life as a tour guide.

Interviewer: When you see strangers wandering through parts of the castle that you looked upon as your own, how does that affect you? How do you feel when they're looking at books that you've treasured and other items that you treasure?

Oh, I enjoy it, especially if they like it too. I do a lot of guide work in the castle. In fact, May and June last year I did full-time guidework, seven days a week. And, oh, well, I did take some time off but I always got a stand-in guide when - times I was off - and I enjoyed it and I still do guidework - I help them out whenever they're short of guides and I enjoy it. I mean, you - well, I've learn a lot. I learned things I never knew before; some expert on some particular thing comes through and tells me something I didn't know. And then quite often I get stumped by a question which means I've got to go the book and find out the answer and so I'm learning all the time. It's all terribly interesting. And if I do get button-holed by a dead bore I can usually get away, you see, because I carry my badge, my National Trust badge, as an official guide so I can say, 'Oh, excuse me' and go over and talk to somebody else in the other corner of the room.

Interviewer: How many people know it's the Brodie of Brodie that's taking them round?

Some people do know me by sight. More now since the guidebook was published because unfortunately there's a photograph of me on the front with my dog and so they, they recognise me from that. I do have my name on my badge. I don't display it - I sometimes cover it up and I sometimes turn slightly away - but sometimes I see them suddenly staring at my badge. And at other times people say to me, 'Do any of the family live here any more?' and I say, 'Well, yes, as a matter of fact, I do.'
