How to make a sheaf

Donald MacKinnon of Hough demonstrating how to tie a `bann` around a `sguab` (sheaf) in August 2002. Before mechanisation, crops were first arranged into small stacks of several sheaves in the field. Once dry, they were transported to the croft`s stackyard to be stored in large haystacks.
