JUBILEE COTTAGE HISTORY

Jubilee Cottage was one of the first built in this corner of Uig, known as Idrigill. The house takes its name from the first occupant who was called Angus Stewart and he was born in the year 1897. In Gaelic tradition it is common to be given a ‘nickname’. The reason for this was that there was, within the village, several Angus Stewarts all living at the same time.

 

The Angus Stewart who first lived here, and who remained here throughout his adult years, was given the nickname of ‘Jubilee’ as his birth year was the year of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria’s reign. This ‘nicknaming’ was and still is a practice that goes back generations and simply serves the purpose of distinguishing person with the same name from another.

 

“Jubilee” was the local Postman for many years and was well respected in the community. He acquired a second ‘nickname’ at this time as “Angus Post” referring to his occupation-again a common practice in Gaeldom. Being a postman was seen as a very good job as it carried a regular salary, a pension and the use of a motor vehicle. All highly attractive in an era when crofting agriculture only supplied a very modest living with few creature comforts and certainly no luxuries of life.

 

In addition to his ‘official’ duties of delivering mail Angus would also be the receiver and conveyer of all the local news as he travelled from home to home. As such he would be an honoured guest in any crofters kitchen for a ‘Strupag’- A cup of tea and maybe a scone-as he travelled around the locality.

 

I hope the story of Jubilee’s cottage has been of interest to you and that you will honour his memory and enjoy your stay.

**By strange coincidence when we bought the house in 2012 it was Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee!

** The bottles on the mantelpiece were found underneath the floor near the fireplace. We’re not sure what era they are from but could well have been handled by Jubilee himself enjoying ‘a wee dram’.
