San earrainn claistneachd seo, clàraichte ann an 2006, tha Iain Rothach a bha roimhe na dhròbhair a' cuimhneachadh a bhith a' dròbhadh sna h-Uibhistean. San ìomhaigh seo tha stansa fèille aig Staoinebrig, Uibhist a Deas, 1965.

It was quite a big sale, Stoneybridge. And it was a - just a repetition again; when the sale was finished the cattle were all put together and they were walked to Daliburgh and they were, they were left there. And the, all the, the sale - the buyers and auctioneers and office staff - they went away to a place called Carsaville. Now Carsaville is on the road down to, it's the road that takes you down to, if you're going across to Eriskay now. And Carsaville was a big, a big crofting area. The crofting numbers there - it'd be croft three hundred and something. It was a ver-, a huge crofting area round that area and the afternoon sale was held there and then that cattle were brought up to Daliburgh.

Tuesday morning there was a sale at Milton. Milton cattle then were brought in and then all that cattle were again drawn - the Oban ones and the Kyle, the ones for Kyle - they were all loaded on the Tuesday afternoon. Probably it was the same boats that came back after delivering the ones that we loaded on Sunday. And eh, then that would be all finished by about 3 or 4 o'clock but a lot of your loadings depended on the tide. If you had a very low tide, it was very - but if you had a, a sort of medium, you know, tide it made the loadings far easier because the cattle had to, you know-? After that was all completed, back on the bus again, down to get the ferry across to North Uist.

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.
