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 studied history at university I find Islay’s vast history highly interesting. I have had first hand experience working in the visitor centres at a couple of the distilleries on the island where I have had the opportunity to expand my knowledge on their histories and the whisky itself. I look forward to being a part of this story gathering project and in meeting new people.
