There he was in the peat loft when I went for the peats, and he had it all as fine as clerk after passon.
Just stirring the peats, and boiling the kettle, and lifting the gorse when there was any fire.
First he took off his boots, and made for the peats on tiptoe.
Before the glow of the peats the sadness and gloom slowly dissipated.
See, I have been dreaming and sleeping all night before the peats.
But all morning and noon Torcall Cameron had sat brooding by the peats.
He was in the big chair before the peats, with his feet on a claar.
He cuts the peats, and leaves them to be dried and piled up by his family.
To see him do the heavy work of the house and carrying in the peats was a sorry sight.
I might have kent yon one never came from Oronsay, for it hadn't the smell of peats.
