Can do, might as well start off at the beginning. Well, I’m Iain Macleod. I moved here in 1980 when I was nine year old and my parent’s grandfather had passed away and grandmother was still living in that house up in Garafad. Been here ever since, sort of thing. I took over the croft from my great-uncle here about ten years ago when he became ... well, he was seventy-five so decided to retire and I got his croft and I bought my house and croft here last year. I keep about a hundred sheep, seven cattle, but it’s only on a part-time basis. I was working for Scottish Water and I do part-time work for the fire brigade on Staffin, so between the three it keeps me fairly busy.
