These Highland shepherds were hardy men, forRobbie remembers how they each carried a bag ofoatmeal, and how, when night fell, if they were nearno cottage, they simply made themselves crowdy,by mixing a handful of oatmeal with a little cold water,and when they had eaten that, they wrapped themselvesin their plaids and lay down to pass the night on thehill-side beside their sheep.
