San earrainn claistneachd seo, clàraichte ann an 2006, tha Iain Rothach a bha roimhe na dhròbhair a' cuimhneachadh air ceannaichean agus ropairean eadar-dhealaichte a bha an sàs ann an gnìomhachas a' chruidh sna h-Eileanan A-muigh. San ìomhaigh (1954) tha cuid de na daoine-uasal a th' air an ainmeachadh ann an clàradh Iain.

'This gentleman was Willie White. He was the cashier for Corsons. That chap there, is, we knew him as Louie Stuart. Donald Cameron, he had a different name for him. He was from Fort William. Now of all those ones in, that's in the boat there - I think that there's just Geordie McCallum, Donald and myself. That's the lot.

That was a Danny Clark, have you got it there?

Interviewer: Number 10 - yes, yardsman at Oban.

Yes, and a, and a great athlete too. That chap Danny Clark also assisted in the evacuation of St. Kilda.

Interviewer: And who was he not sure about? Bill Rimmer? Number 4, which is ..

That's the man with the hat.

Interviewer: Yes, yes. That's right is it?

Yes. He belonged to Crieff, I think. Perth or Crieff. He was a, a potato merchant. And this gemtleman at the very back, Duncan Macrae, he was the, he was employed by the ministry as the - he went round punching the calves for the subsidy, and he always came with us to the sales because a lot of them would bring their calves along to the sale and they got their ear punched and then they got the subsidy.

This was Alasdair Mackay. He was the head yardsman of Reith and Anderson's in Dingwall. That's John Munro, auctioneer - now John Munro belonged to Beauly, Wellhouse, Beauly. This man, this man hiding at the back here, well not hiding at the back but sitting further down, he had the island of Rona off the, off the coast of Skye. Donald McCallum. Sorry I can't remember the name of the dog. But Giddy Scott, that, that, he was head yardsman. He was equal with Corsons as Alistair Mackay was with Reith and Andersons.

Interviewer: And is that coming into - That is, that -

Interviewer: Benbecula?

Eh, that will be leaving Benbecula going towards South Uist, no North Uist. It's after loading all the cattle in South Uist. Benbecula and South Uist was Saturday, Monday Tuesday. That was the three days the sales took place.'

Rugadh Iain Rothach air Tuathanas a' Chnuic Dhuibh, Baile Eòghainn, Siorrachd Rois ann an 1933. Bha athair 's a sheanair nan luchd-malairt cruidh agus chaorach, agus b' ann air sgàth a' cheangail a bh' aig athair ri na ropairean stuic, Reith agus MacAnndrais, a thòisich Iain, nach robh ach aois 11 no 12, a chuideachadh aig fèilltean stuic ann an Inbhir Pheofharain. Aig aois 18, thòisich Iain a dhol a-mach gu na h-Uibhistean na dhròbhair le Reith agus MacAnndrais a chuideachadh aig na fèilltean ràitheil. Aig an àm sin, cha robh goireasan ann airson làraidhean a chur air tìr air na h-eileanan agus mar sin dh'fheumadh an crodh a bhith air an iomain bho na fèilltean gu na bàtaichean, gus an tàinig na h-aiseagan ro-ro ann an 1965.

Ghabh Iain os làimh tuathanas an teaghlaich faisg air Baile Eòghainn ann an 1964 agus bha e ri tuathanachas an sin gu 1984. Lean e air a' cuideachadh aig na fèilltean roip ann an Inbhir Pheofharain nuair a bha feum air. O leig e seachad an tuathanas, tha Iain air fuireach ann an obair co-cheangailte ri tuathanachas, a' dràibheadh làraidhean, a' reic fras fheòir agus a' cuideachadh nàbaidhean agus teaghlach le stoc.
