This picture of a group of Sutherland crofters was taken at the foot of a croft known as Leslie's croft (location unknown), just after they had been released from Dornoch Jail. They had been arrested for resisting eviction orders. The long horns were used by the women to summon the men back to the croft when the Sheriff's men were spotted coming up the glen. They are mainly members of a family called Calder. Back (L to R) - John Calder, John Matheson, William Calder, Robbie Calder, Walter Chisholm. Front (L to R) - Neil Calder, Mrs Ross, Massie Mackay, George Munro.
