Community land oral history project kicks off

Applications are now open for volunteers who would like to participate in a project capturing the oral history of community land buyouts in Harris and Lewis. Community Land Scotland has received support from the Heritage Lottery Fund to capture people’s personal experiences of the buyouts on North Harris, Scalpay, West Harris and the Galson Estate. The histories will appear in an exhibition in Harris next summer and will be archived for future use.

Volunteers will receive two days of training in oral history recording from Dr Issie MacPhail of UHI. If you are interesting in applying,  you can download an application form from here.
