Contributors - Donald Alasdair Johnson
Reporters - Donald Archie MacDonald; Angus John MacDonald

Summary - Fighting at fairs.

The contributor remembers when people fought at the fair; it was part of the normal procedure. There used to be a fair at Loch Ollay with three whisky tents. Close family and relations fought against other families. This practice came to an end when whisky-drinking stopped being part of the fair. More information on methods and reasons for fighting. The law was never involved. It was great entertainment.
