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 air an ùidh a tha aige ann a bhith a' dèanamh fhìdhlean agus mun cheangal ri na Lovat Scouts.

'I got every book I could lay hands on about fiddle making, studied them and of course, over the years, even today, I still get the Strad magazine. I don't say I can learn anything more out of it now because it's been all said and re-said ever so often but over the years you accumulate a vast fund of knowledge about it - it's inevitable. I'm sixty seven now and studied all these time except for during the war years when I was away in the army and of course by then I was a Pipe Major in the Lovat Scouts, you see? And that I couldn't play the fiddle or touch a fiddle then. And for a year or two after the war I still just played pipes but I came gradually back to the fiddle again and I started making them and people are - liked my fiddles and wanting them, with the result is I've got to make more and more of them and now I can't keep up with the number of people who want them made by me. I'd rather make fiddles than play them any day. Very keen on it'
