Very good sharing.thanks.
What is the shieling, please?
Hello Lesley A shieling is a hut or collection of huts in a remote part of Scotland. in this context it was where the families would move with the flocks to summer pasture. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shieling
That's interesting, thanks. I always thought that sort of hut was called a bothy but it seems a bothy was used for lone shepherds or for men working on landed estates, rather than for families following the sheep in summer.
