B' e Craichidh fear de na bailtean mu dheireadh am Bàideanach a chaidh a thrèigeadh san 20mh linn. Na laighe gu tuath air Abhainn Spè, aig beul Ghleann Marcaidh, bha Craichidh uaireigin na dhachaigh do dheich teaghlaichean ar fhichead.

B' àbhaist do Rosie Chaimbeul, tè às an Lagan, samhraidhean a h-òige a chur seachad ann an Craichidh, a' fuireach aig a caraid, Magaidh Nic a' Phearsain. Sa phìos chlaistinneach seo tha cuimhn' aig Rosie air dannsa a bha san àite.

'One day, I was over at the chapel with Maggie MacPherson, and the priest at that time was Father MacDonald, and he had two sisters that kept house to him, and they were Bradys; Bella Brady was the housekeeper and her sister, Polly. And they of course both spoke Gaelic as well as they were from the Islands, and Gaelic was spoken there quite a lot. And we were coming over, just coming down towards the bridge, and we were looking over at Archie's new barn when one of them said, 'Wouldn't be an idea if we got Archie to hold a dance in the barn and we could - to open the barn?' And, instead of the girls going back to the house, they all carried on to Archie's and asked him there and then, and he would need to go in and ask his mother, if she would approve of this, and she was, did. And there and then it was arranged that a dance would take place.

And the people from the Glen and Loch Laggan and down Laggan Bridge were all - it was an open invitation for them to come to it. And I myself must just have been about between five and six at the time and I went - stayed the night at Crathie and so did my sister Bertha. We stayed the night but our brother cycled up and he cycled back, along with a lot of others that did the same.

The tea was made in the house and the old granny sat up all night keeping the fire on and keeping the kettles boiled, and it was all homemade baking like pancakes, scones, oatcakes and cheese and things; there was some sandwiches. And we'd a very jolly night and the music was supplied by Alec Macrae, from Balgowan, and his brother, Jimmy, and his brother Willie, with [?] and old Andrew MacDonald from Ravenswood in Kinlochlaggan, with his concertina.

The dance went on until near five in the morning and, by this time, Mr Andrew MacDonald was getting in very good form and he lifted me up and put me on his shoulder, with my legs round each of his, round each shoulder, and held me with one huge hand - he was a huge man - and he marched round the hall, and said to everybody that he thought it was time that the dance was coming to an end, as it was getting the early hours of the morning, and that his little friend Rosie was getting sleepy, so he thought we should bring it to a halt!'
