Bringing the past back to life

editorial image

Pupils from Sgoil an Taobh Siar will bring the past to life for their peers with two brand new films made as part of Historic Environment Scotland’s Junior Tour Guide programme.

An Tac an Teine (Beside the Fire) explores the myths and legends of Gaelic culture, and helps bring the history of a Blackhouse to life by allowing pupils to experience a time when entertainment focussed on the coming together and sharing of stories around the fire.

Historic Environment Scotland would like to hear local memories of the Blackhouse way of life.

They are encouraging people who have seen the film to get in touch with their own stories.

An Tac an Teine is available to watch online: (English version)

And at: (Gaelic version).
