Na Drobhairean

Caught part of an intriguing programme on TeleG, the local Gaelic Community Channel: "Na Drobhairean" (The Drovers).

Presenter Peter Macaulay will examine the ways in which the drovers enriched the songs, stories and poetry of the Highlands...Scotland's drovers enhanced the economic well being of rural communities as they plied their trade from the north and west to the markets of the lowlands. They also contributed a great deal to the culture of the country. (link)
