Interviewer: Do you remember Lord Novar?

Yes, oh fine, that. Old Lord Novar. And his wife, Lady Ellen.

Interviewer: Mmm-hmm. How was he?

He was a grand sort, too.

Interviewer: Mmm-hmm.

Oh yes. Old Lord Novar.

Interviewer: He was interested in forestry. Did he spend time in the sawmills too?

No, he would take a walk around, like. Oh, he walked round them, aye. But, he might have been in them when he was younger, I don't know, but oh no, he was always out in a wood.

Interviewer: Yes. But the mills didn't belong to him, at that stage.

Mmm?

Interviewer: It was later on that the mills came under Novar ownership?

Aye. Aye, after the - or during the war, I think that we shifted, like, my father shifted into the Novar Estate, like.

Interviewer: Mmm-hmm.

But we were still working Novar, like for all that time. Aye. I don't know whether Novar had - I think they had a mill many, many years ago, like. But, it was just what I was hearing.

Interviewer: Mmm-hmm.

They had a bobbin mill.

Interviewer: Yes.

That was down at, very near Evanton. Just before you go into the village, like. Left-hand side.

Interviewer: Yes, is there any -

You know where the station -

Interviewer: - remains of that?

Mmm?

Interviewer: Is there any remains of that, do you know?

No. I don't think they'll be now. There were for a while. There were a bobbin mill and a creosoting plant down there.

Interviewer: Yes?

Aye. Used to make this bobbins for the, all the jute mills and all that and -

Interviewer: Ah yes,

Aye. Aye.

Interviewer: So did the production vary much from year to year?

The stuff was going away regularly, you had - by railway like.

Interviewer: Mmm-hmm.

Aye. Wood was going regular. And then you had the wood to the farms all round about as far as Tain, Golspie, Brora.

Interviewer: Yes.

Aye.

Interviewer: Did the production change much from one year to the next?

Yes, of course, there were different - ach well, I wouldn't have said - much, it's more or less, all machinery now, where before we had no - it was the hand crankers, you would say, in the sawmill, you know, for putting the stake through the saw.
