Dìobadal had up to 8 àireaghean (sheilings).  People often travelled here with cattle in the summer months, as they depended on it to graze the cattle whilst the croft land was being cultivated to provide crops, to sustain them through the winter. 

The women used to get up early and go to the shore at Dìobadal to gather seaweed which the cattle were very fond of, especially at milking time.   


Dìobadal seemed a long way – as close to Tolsta as it was from Ness!
