Grass roots story gathering is at the heart of COAST. 32 locals have been brought on board as story gatherers to reach out and encourage sharing and to gather material for our story bank. If you have a story to tell do please use our survey link but should you know of any important resources that would help our local story gatherers please use the appropriate form below to contact them. Some but not all of our story gatherers speak Gaelic.
I am originally from Raasay and after years at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig (both as a student and in the marketing dept.) and working in community development, I am relieved to be back on Raasay permanently. I have started the MSc in Material Culture and Highland History which has rejuvenated my interest in Raasay history. I am excited to be part of such an interesting Project to collate a wide variety of stories.
