Anns an earrainn chlaisnich seo tha croitear à Canisbay a rugadh ann an 1901 a' cuimhneachadh mar a bhiodh muinntir nan croitean bu lugha a' strì gus beòshlaint a dhèanamh. Tha e a' toirt iomradh cuideachd air Dùnrath, làrach reactar niùclasach Ùghdarras Cumhachd Niùclasach na Rìoghachd Aonaichte a dh'fhosgail ann an 1955. Cha b' fhada gus am b' e bu mhotha a bha a' toirt de chosnadh ann an Gallaibh, agus a' tairgsinn, aig an àm, tuarastail an ìre mhath àrd agus obraichean seasmhach. Ràinig an dealan a' mhòr-chuid de thuath Ghallaibh anmoch sna 1940an agus tràth sna 1950an ri linn obair Bòrd Dealan-uisge Ceann a Tuath na h-Alba. Bha ceangal aig naochad sa cheud de dhachaighean croitearachd ris a' ghriod nàiseanta tràth sna 1970an.

'We keeped a horse an two coos an half a dozen o sheep. Oh yes, we'd a dug an two or three cats. Oh, the cats wis, Ah suppose, for catchin mice but they were more or less pets. An we, we hid a good dug.

Nowadays there's very few folk depends on their croft now they've other work. (Yeah). However, Ah think they works at Dou-, crofters works at Dounreay an there are very few - There were the bigger type o croft which wis supposed to be self-supportin, an the little croft which the man hid to go oot an work apairt fae his croft an earn his money, (yeah), to supplement what he wis earnin. An of course they hidn't - the smaller crofter hid maybe two coos an a horse; the bigger man wi the pair o horse an the four coos. Weel, it took all his time to work a croft an of course there were no modern amenities then, no electricity or no watter, an no - Of course there were no television. Course, withoot electricity there's no electric kettles or anythin like that, or blankets, or kettles. An there were very little money. The weemin went to the nearest shop wi a basket o eggs an exchanged it for groceries an if there wis any copper or two o'er that wis all they handled. Many people thinks that life on a croft wis an ideal thing cos they're independent an they're their own boss but there's another side to the picture.'

Bha croitean Ghallaibh gu math coltach ri croitean sna siorrachdan croitearachd eile an Alba: Earra Ghàidheal, Inbhir Nis, Ros agus Cromba, Cataibh, agus Sealtainn. Bhiodh an croitear a' cumail beagan bheathaichean - mar as trice, co-dhiù aon bhò , caoraich, cearcan agus muc. Bha an t-each na bheathach cudromach airson luchdan a ghiùlan gus mu dheireadh ghabh tractaran beaga an t-àite aige bho dheireadh nan 1940an suas. B' e am bàrr àbhaisteach coirce (ris an canadh iad arbhar ann an Gallaibh), buntàta, snèapan agus feur, agus na h-uimhir de ghlasraich. Suas gu anmoch anns na 1950an bhiodh croitearan aig an robh cothrom air barrachd fearainn gu ìre mhòir fèin-fhoghainteach, ach gu cumanta bhiodh obair aig buill dhen teaghlach air falbh bhon chroit. Bha ceàird aig iomadach croitear a leig leis obair fhaighinn air falbh bhon dachaigh. Bhiodh uisge airson na croit a' tighinn bho thobar, fuaran no allt faisg air làimh. B' e an connadh a bu ghoireasaiche airson còcaireachd agus teas a' mhòine 's bha sin air a buan 's air a tioramachadh air a' mhòintich as t-samhradh
