A little local trouble
Saturday 09 March 1996
On Eigg, it is the plight of the island's cattle that has infuriated the locals. On Tuesday the island's owner Maruma, sold all the remaining beasts bar one - Barney the Limousin Bull, father of nearly all the island's cattle. Poor Barney failed to sell because of missing papers and will go under the hammer at a later date. For Eigg islanders the sale was a tragedy. Stockman Donald McFadyen told The Herald. "I don't know how they will adapt to the climate in other parts of the country." Now residents fear this is the start of something more sinister and rumours of an island clearance are rife.
