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 ag innse mar as fheàrr leis fìdhlean sìmplidh, plèan.

'Strad use to greatly ornament the ribs, sometimes painting on designs but mostly tedious inlay to satisfy the whim of some wealthy customer, you see. And I think that was an awful waste of time of a genius like him. During the time he did that he could have built maybe another fiddle or couple of fiddles. And I don't like over-ornamentation on a fiddle. I don't like too fancy ornamented tail pieces - as they used to have at one time - or fancy pegs with gold or silver trimmings. It's like painting the lily. I think this thing should just stand, stand or fall, on its merits'
