Grogarry Lodge: Community Cèilidh “par excellence”!

Owned by the community company Stòras Uibhist, Grogarry Lodge is a remarkable venue. And last Thursday it hosted a remarkable evening, when learners of English and Gaelic from various classes around Uist gathered for an end-of-term celebration. The event was organised by the recently formed Language and Culture group at Cothrom, and was aimed at celebrating the rich linguistic diversity in the community. For one night, learners became teachers and shared something of their own languages with others eager to learn – including phrases of German, Italian, Polish and Russian, as well as English and Gaelic. Community members and followers of Guthan nan Eilean will recognise many of the faces, and perhaps be pleasantly surprised at the humour and talent on display that might not previously have been suspected!

Food, thoughts, and songs were shared, with the English learners producing this booklet containing the recipes for the dishes they had prepared, as well as some poems reflecting their impressions of Scotland and the Western Isles. Just click on the link to download your own free copy!

    Brosnachail gu dearbh agus cèilidh (eadar-nàiseanta) mar a bu chòir – spòrs, coimhearsnachd, ceòl, biadh ‘ionadail’.
