  • Outer HebridesCultural Entitlements PathfinderThe story so far

  • What connects the NHS, Comhairle, Northern Constabulary, Lews Castle College, and HIE?

  • Us.

  • National Policy

    I remember when everyone grew corn - we would catch dogfish then lay them amongst the sheaves of corn in the stack. The wind preserved them over the Winter. You would take out sheaves to feed the animals and a fish to feed yourself

  • Culture is a bit of a brochan it isOur activities on the island. Our work. Our landscape and how we use it

    The fabric and background of society and the interaction of the people within it

    How a community and individuals express themselves creatively

    Who I am, who we are, where we are

    What makes us unique

  • Our brochan is:the Gaelic language; strong sense of community; an inspiring if often harsh environment; and a common history in which hardship and the need to cope with the different attitude of the outside world is important

  • Andrich in oral traditions and through immigration connected to the rest of the world

    Weather dominated with people you recognise it either makes you glad you are here, or wish you were away

    Islands, Gaelic, beaches, small but good communities, people that care, strong sense of identity, paradox, music, extreme weather, beauty and harshness, laughter and challenges

  • So what expectations should we have?
