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.
Born in Oban, I’ve grown up in and lived in Argyll all my life except for a brief stint in the states at university and a wee foray briefly in to Highland region, eventually settling in Appin. I love living on the west coast and found it particularly hard living in West Virginia and not seeing the sea every day!
My time away at uni made me appreciate home much more, it’s true beauty, and also made me want to learn much more about the history of the area I love so much. I’m delighted to be part of this project helping to bring some amazing stories to life.
