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.
My home is near Aultbea in Wester Ross and I cultivate the croft where my family have lived and worked since 1840.
I share my time between my family life, work, which can take me worldwide, as a volunteer with the local mountain rescue team and as a chorister with Còisir Ghàidhlig Inbhir Nis. I am also a board member of Wester Ross Biosphere.
I love the people and the place where I am from. This land and its stories shaped who I am. I am delighted by the opportunity to help people share their stories in their words.
Tha beagan Gàidhlig agam ach mi ag ionnsachadh fhathast!
