San earrainn fuaim seo tha Hermione Protheroe, às Abhach, a' bruidhinn air cuid de na bùithean a bha sa bhaile. Tha iomradh aice cuideachd air feart tìre sa choimhearsnachd, an Giant's Staff.

Chaidh na clàraidhean fuaim a dhèanamh nam pàirt de Phròiseact Chuimhneachaidhean Dualchais an Eilein Duibh, air a dhèanamh ann an 2009/2010 le ARCH (Archaeology for Communities in the Highlands/Arc-eòlas airson Coimhearsnachdan air a' Ghàidhealtachd). Gus an ionnsaich thu tuilleadh mun phròiseact, lean an ceangal aig bonn na duilleig.

Seo an tar-sgrìobhadh:

CM: But there's a lot of shops?

HP: Yes.

CM: A lot of shops.

HP: Mmm-hmm.

CM: As you've said, as well, the other shops down at Henrietta and ...

HP: There was that one at Henrietta [?] they called him Cheek. [?] I think the woman's ... The woman came from Cromarty and I think that was probably a nickname. But her son, Thomas, after he came back from the war he had a van and went round Killen and all round about with the groceries. And the butchers had vans too, of course.

CM: And, we've remembered, em, most of the village now, I would say, we've probably covered a lot of ground, but I want to take you back out on your walk when you went down to Craigach and you talked earlier about the Giant's Staff?

HP: Staff, yes, yes.

CM: Now I think you probably remember a little bit more about that. Do you want to tell us a bit more?

HP: Well as I say I can't remember being up at it. but I believe it was a marriage stone.

CM: Can you tell me a bit more about marriage stones?

HP: I can't really.

CM: No, no. And it was a stone that you saw from the road where you were up ...?

HP: Oh yes, a big pillar, five, six feet maybe.

CM: A big standing ...

HP: Of course it looked like that as young children.

CM: So, a big standing stone?

HP: Uh- huh. I don't remember going up and reading anything, but, memory's ...

CM: But that's right that somebody has told you that people carved their names ...

HP: Yes. Uh-huh.

CM: ... when they got married ...

HP: Uh-huh.

CM: ... at the stone?

HP: Ye-es, but I've never heard of anybody getting married - a bit before my time, I suppose [laughs]

CM: Well, Hermy, that's been wonderful. You've a lot of Avoch memories and Avoch has changed has changed a great deal in the time since you were a child.

HP: Oh yes, you know the new, well, of course MacKenzie, they started building that and ...

CM: All the houses.

HP: Yes, uh-huh. And a lot of new people have come in you know. We used to know everybody, well, just like all the villages now, we don't know everybody.

CM: Mmm-hmm.

HP: But I was coming up Margaret Street the other day and I thought, 'Gosh, I would like to come back down here and try to remember who stayed in these houses.'

CM: Well, maybe that's something we can do when the weather gets better.

HP: Yes, we were just thinking of that; it'd be nice to do, that.

CM: Have a walk through the village

HP: And seeing the places, you know, makes you think more ...

CM: Mmm.

HP: ... you remember more of it. And the old worthies that stayed.

CM: Mmm. Wellm we will do that. We will do that.

HP: Yes, yes.

CM: And I'm fascinated to see the house where, where the Queen's maid was born, in George Street that Don was telling us about, Don Patience.

HP: Oh, oh - the Queen's Maid?

CM: Mmm, but I think she was a Maid to the Princess Margaret perhaps, but ...

HP: Oh, was she MacDonald? Because I know, know on the way to Muir of Ord, just after Tore, there's a cottage up there, and the MacDonald sisters that were maids to, eh, Princess Margaret and the Queen.

CM: Oh well then, must be.

HP: But they were born in Avoch? I didn't know that.

CM: Yes [laughs]. Oh well Hermy, we'll get Don to tell us more about that.

HP: Yes, yes. He's very informative.

CM: Thank you very much

HP: Not at all.

CM:Thank you for all your time.

HP: A pleasure.

CM: Thank you.

HP: A pleasure.
