Rugadh is thogadh Màiri NicDhòmhnaill air Tuathanas Bhuntait air Oighreachd nan Siosalach, Gleann Urchardain. San earrainn chlaistinnich seo tha i a' bruidhinn mu chrìochan nan tuathanasan, drèanadh, stoc is dròbhaireachd. Tha i a' bruidhinn mun dròbhair Iain Dòmhnallach à Gleann Urchadain.

Chaidh a tharraing dor n-aire bho chionn ghoirid gu bheil teaghlach aig Mgr Peadar Grannd (an t-ùghdar air ainmeachadh san tras-sgrìobhadh shìos), 's e sin ban-ogha agus ban-iar-ogha dha, fhathast a' fuireach ann am Blàr na Màigh an-diugh (Samhain 2010). Tha a' bhan-ogha aig Mgr Grannd 91 bliadhna a dh'aois. Tha sinn taingeil do Mhgr Pàdraig Grannd airson an fhiosrachaidh seo.

Interviewer: How were the farm boundaries marked out?

Mary: Well, by fences mostly, and even out on the hill, on the hill ground, there were a lot of fencing there. It wasn't common grazing as you would find in crofting communities.

Interviewer: What about drainage of the ground?

Mary: There wasn't a lot of draining needed, not in that area but there were some farms drains. I think old stone drains would have been the thing.

Interviewer: What kind of livestock were kept?

Mary: Livewtock. Well, sheep, of course, and some cattle. The sheep were mainly of, in Buntait anyway, they were of the Cheviot breed. And the cattle, mixed variety. As far as I can remember the cattle, the calves, were not sold in the market in Inverness as they are now; the dealers came round and bought the cattle on the farms, or crofts and then their men came and collected them up into a large drove and took them away to be sold. Well, a lot of them went to Falkirk, I understand, to the markets there. And in fact, a man who lived at Drumnadrochit wrote a book about droving, about a drover who was supposed to have gone from Glen Urquhart down to Falkirk, and in the end he went to South America with the cattle. He stayed there for some time and then came back to his home in Bunloit where his widowed mother lived. It's a romance, really, but I think it was based on fact and the name of the book was 'Ian MacDonald from Glenurquhart'. It was a Mr Grant was the name of the author and until very recently some of his descendants were still living in Lewiston, beside, near Drumnadrochit.
