The Harris Heritage Trail interpretation project will produce a guide book detailing the oral history of villages and other locations throughout Harris, combined with information on the history of the area in past centuries, information on archaeological sites, and the wildlife and geology of Harris.



The project will make good use of audio archives containing recordings of Harris people, including the tapes and transcriptions made by people working for the Comunn Eachdraidh in the 1980s and the audio archive held by the School of Scottish Studies in Edinburgh containing recordings made in the 1950s to the 1990s. A request has also been made for access to recordings made for BBC Radio nan Gaidheal, now being researched for the Tobar an Dualchais project run by Sabhal Mor Ostaig.

Anyone interested in finding out more, or getting involved in the historical projects currently underway, or who have photographs, other records, or items to add to the collection, please contact Joan Cumming at The Old Hostel, Tel: 01859 502587.
