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 have always loved island life, I grew up on the Isle of Tiree and continue to work here, I couldn’t imagine any other place to stay than by the sea. The stories passed through the generations within island communities are ones that change and adapt through time but never lose their magic. Being a part of the COAST project is very exciting, Tiree has some amazing traditions and tales to share and I can’t wait to share them!
