Thanks to the people of Mull -

Peter MacLean for his Gaelic story, Ann McKenzie for her translation, Dr Bill Clegg for his handwriting,

Margot Bryce for her hair and Barbara White for her handkerchief.

 

 

'I remember one of the MacAllisters in Tobermory, there was an old woman a relation and when he was going to fish she would give him a three-knotted handkerchief. You opened the first knot if there was no wind and the second if there was not enough, but no way would you open the third! Heaven would fall down!'
