The custom of the maiden sheaf, the last sheaf of harvest.
The youngest girl on the harvest field cut the last sheaf and carried it home. A celebration took place at the end of harvest, with eating, drinking, music, and sometimes dancing in the farm kitchen. The last or maiden sheaf, known as A' Mhaighdean Bhuana, was tied with ribbon. It was given to the horses to eat the following year when the first load of the harvest was brought in. Now William Forbes gives it to the cows, because he no longer has any horses. Very few people now  carry out the custom of the last sheaf.
