Someone who has lived in Ormsaigbeg all his life says that this was once the home of a shepherd who was employed by the crofters of Ormsaigbeg to care for the sheep which they kept on the common grazings in the hills above the township. They paid him for his services, but he also had a small piece of land which he farmed and upon which he had a small house. Since this story came from our informant's mother, and she never knew the shepherd, it's likely that the house was last occupied some time before 1900. While he couldn't be sure, he thought that the shepherd's name was MacKenzie.
