Bha Rèile an Eilein Duibh na mheur de Rèile na Gàidhealtachd bho thùs. Bha e a' giùlan luchd-siubhail eadar 1894 agus 1951(bathar gu 1960) agus bha e a' ruith eadar Am Blàr Dubh agus A' Chananaich agus bha e a' stad aig stèiseanan anns a' Chaisteal Dhearg, Alan, Bun Lòchaidh agus Abhach.

Earrann fuaim bho 2006 anns an cluinnear Hannah Alexander, tè às a' Chananaich, a' bruidhinn air an luchd-turais a thàinig air an trèan.

Interviewer: Did you notice a difference in people coming on holiday?

Hannah: We had more holidaymakers who would come, they would perhaps come - There was some families from Glasgow, they came at the beginning of July and they waited until the end of August and father just came up for the Fair or for the odd weekend. But, you know, before long they were coming, but in cars.

Interviewer: Yes, yes, but, would they bring their, like a trunk or something...

Hannah: Yes, their luggage.

Interviewer: ...if they were coming for that length of time they would need to - yes.

Hannah: And I remember one Jewish family, they brought all their pots and pans and things like that, you know, because they were - They brought everything practically and they took this house for a month.

Interviewer: And would this be a holiday house?

Hannah: Well, it might, yes. No. The people that they were renting it from would be 'doing' for them, as they said, you know? They would be doing the cooking. But it was all done in their own pots and pans because they were very orthodox. It was quite unusual.

Interviewer: Yes.

Hannah: And I'll give you an instance. The boy - one of the boys - quite often they would come in - You see, then, after I was married we had a bakery in the High Street - what's now an antique shop - and a lot of people came in before the shop would open in the morning and this boy he used to come in every morning for his rolls, you see, while he was on holiday. And my husband was making doughnuts, he was - every morning, and he said to the boy one morning, 'Would you like a doughnut, Victor?' 'Well, no thank you, Mr Alexander. No thank you'. The next day he came he said, 'What kind of oil are you using Mr Alexander? 'Oh,' my husband said, 'Vegetable oil' 'Oh, yes. I'll take a doughnut'. That's true. I remember. We thought, 'Well, good for you' that way. He was just quite a youngster

Interviewer: He must have been keen, to get the doughnuts?

Hannah: Well he wanted, but you see he wouldn't take the doughnut if he thought it was in animal fat. Likely he went home and he asked, and [Laughter]. It was quite a nice little story, you know, when you think about it.

Interviewer: And what about, was there hotels in Fortrose at the time?

Hannah: Well, there was just the one hotel, and the one in Rosemarkie, of course, which was much bigger and there were more houses that let. They let the rooms and the owner of the house would provide, you know, the work, would look after, cook the food. The people would bring in their own food and the lady of the house would cook it for them and serve it so that they were virtually on holiday apart from buying their food but then that gradually changed, you know, over the years and -

Interviewer: And when they arrived in Fortrose, say they were going to Rosemarkie, for their holiday, how would they get from - ?

Hannah: They must, they must have been - Well, the luggage would go down on the lorry, the lorry would go down, with the luggage and they probably walked. It was easy to walk, you see, and there weren't many cars or anything A great many of the people came on holiday it was for golf, and they used to bathe and tennis and bowls and walks and that. But there's nothing like the same number of people come nowadays.
