Can you help the project?

The North Lochs Historical Society are currently assessing how to make the collection of Gaelic place names, recorded in and around thevillages in North Lochs, available to the general public.

The Comann Eachdraidh welcome suggestions on the best way to share the names of the hills, streams and hillocks.

Those landmarks were and still are, way markers, for generations of crofters to define village grazing and often used for locating sheep and cattle while herding.

The location of the natural wells on each croft, in each village and the name of the family who drew water from each well, have been recorded in previous years.

Young people with a pair of wellies and a GPS on their phone are urged to come forward to get location readings for each well.
