‘The shieling did everybody good. There were older women here who went to the shieling for five or six weeks in summer, and when they returned they were transformed. They got a rest and the moorland air did them good. The shieling was a marvellous place.’ Donald Macleod, (Dònaidh, Bradhagair), Comann Eachdraidh an Taobh Siar archive.
