Bha Dòmhnall Riddell BEM, nach maireann, à Cnoc Odhar, faisg air Inbhir Nis. Bhiodh e a' cluich na fìdhle, a' sgrìobhadh ciùil agus a' dèanamh fhìdhlean. Bha e cuideachd na Mhàidsear-pìoba anns na Lovat Scouts. Am measg nan sgoilearan aige bha Donnchadh Siosalach, Brus MacGriogair agus Iain MacPhàrlain.

Anns an earrainn èisteachd seo, tha Dòmhnall a' bruidhinn mun ùine a chuir e seachad anns an taigh aig Aladair Battan Grannd, fear eile a bhiodh a' dèanamh fhìdhlean còmhla ris, agus a bhiodh a' sgrìobhadh ceòl cuideachd.

'In his house, a room upstair - nobody was allowed into it. Even I was never in there. He took everything down to his room and I'd spend the whole day with him assessing the relative qualities of fiddles. We'd have nine or ten fiddles down - including these Rondellos - and we'd compare the - he would play or I would play and we'd discuss the relative merits. He just brought down the - sometimes the pieces, but you didn't get up to see him working at a bench. Och, I think he made, in his lifetime, perhaps sixty or seventy, which is quite a good output, because it takes about a hundred and fifty hours to make a fiddle. You'll not make it much quicker than that, if you're turning out decent, decently finished work'
