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.
Having lived in Cowal for 24 years, I am passionate about the area, its people, history and heritage. I am delighted to have the opportunity to engage with local people, communities groups and organisations to gather the stories, the facts and the memories of the Cowal heritage and culture to develop The Coast That Shaped the World.
I look forward to embracing this opportunity and encouraging the development of storytelling which will encourage people to travel, explore and discover the West Coast of Scotland.
