Query re Gaelic Folklore
On behalf of an elderly friend about a story passed down,via the Ceilidh Houses in the Islands, through generations!

Around 1890/1900's a man from the islands en route to an army camp stopped in Stromeferry for a drink.He was short changed and a fight then ensued with the barman. The soldier got the better of him but tragically the barman subsequently died from his injuries.There was an effort to trace the soldier but his colleagues hid him away. The soldier returned some years later, en route to the fishing (in Portmahomack?)and went to the same bar,ordered the same drink and received the correct change this time.This was noted by local people however he left the premises after smashing his glass against the wall stating ' Aye, that's him.That's the man'.My friend would love to know if there is any record/knowledge of such an occurrence. Could anybody assist/,point me in the right direction? Any help much appreciated!

This ferry was based I believe at Stromeferry till around 1880, and then had an interesting journey across the seas till it reached Australia. It was captained by a Malcolm Carmichael, and any info relating to him would be appreciated.

Facebook is a bright idea for those wanting further info on this lovely area... but we cant find a link to it, neither by looking via Facebook or on this page (which is also a struggle to get to until we put a link on our hime page!) Your lovely village is too well hidden in the electronic tangle, unfortunately !!
