Aig deireadh nan 1970an, thug a Bh-Uas. Rollo a bha na seann bhoireannach a' còmhnaidh ann an Inbir Nis, seachad na cuimhneachain a bh' aice air seann bhaile Inbhir Nis dhan Bh-Uas. Sneddon. Nuair a bha I na pàiste bha a' Bh-Uas. Rollo a' fuireach air Sràid a' Chladaich agus ghluais I gu Sràid a' Mhanaich tràth sna ficheadan. Bha còignear de theaghlach aice; triùir nighean agus dithis bhalach. Bha an duine aice ag obair air Rathad Iarainn na Gàidhealtachd. Anns an earrann èisteachd seo, tha a' Bh-Uas. Rollo a' toirt Uilleam timcheall an taighe aice ann an Sràid a' Mhanaich.

Tha an dealbh seo a' sealltainn Sràid nam Manach, leis an stìoball aig An t-seann Àrd-eaglais aig a' chùl.

Interviewer: Do you remember anything about running - Did you have running water in the house in these days or was it - Did you have a - ?

Oh yes, running water. Just the - That's the sink that - when we came in.

Interviewer: This is the original sink we're looking at now.

Yes. An the one upstair was the same.

Interviewer: An this is the original range?

That's the original grate, yes.

Interviewer: The original grate too.

An everything that's in the house is, of course it's a bitty cleaner, before we came in.

Interviewer: The grate is in wonderful order; it's polished very, very well, and the brass gleaming, and it's got that real look that it should be here and nowhere else. It just makes the - makes your whole home.

Uh-huh. An then the walls; it was all aboot six or seven layers o paper. An that was a job scrapin it all off till we got it, cause I believe this old houses needs air.

Interviewer: Yes.

An ye see I done all that painting masel on the walls.

Interviewer: Wonderful. It's all finished off in a nice cream with a, with a lighter cream ceiling - plain with light green walls, all paintwork

Of course, it's old fashioned. One thing - nobody can copy my designs. [Laughter]

Interviewer: And your little, you little dresser there, which is very nice. What's the history of it? Did you pick - ?

That's over a hundred years.

Interviewer: Yes, it certainly looks it. Where did you pick that up?

Well, it belonged to Mrs. Fraser of Craighead. They were business people. I think they were slaters or something. They stayed over the water somewhere.

Interviewer: Oh yes.

Well, that belonged to that family. An I got the four kitchen chairs an the screen - Mr. Thingmy got the other day - for the - that used to dry the clothes on, the towel rail.

Interviewer: Yes, very good. Is there anything else in the room that's of interest, worth telling about? Anything - your clock?

Oh, the clock, the clock.

Interviewer: Yes, that looks a very nice one.

That was his grandfather's clock. His father's clock.

Interviewer: What is the history of it?

Well, as far as I know he got it from Grays. Ah think that's what he used to say, anyway
