6 Enaclete

Murdo Maclean was the first tenant on 6 Enaclete, one of the Coopers.

The coopers 'cubairean' were Macleans and there was a family of them on the north end of Einicleit -No 1. They left there and went out to 'a Luib' (the bend) as it was known to the locals - that's No 6. But they kept two parts of the croft in at No 1, a piece behind the hill (cul a chnuic) and Gleann na h-Athadh (valley with the mills) where there is a willow patch up until the present day. There were coopers (cubairean), joiners (saoir gheala), boatbuilders (saoir eathraichean) merchants (ceannaichean) and tradesmen (luchd cheard) of all kinds amongst the Macleans.

Norman Macdonald, the fourth tenant, also ran the sub post office on the croft.
