Dùthchas 2022

Abair gun robh spòrs againn aig Dùthchas 2022. What a brilliant Dùthchas week it was across Galson Estate.

Dùthchas is Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn's annual festival celebrating the heritage of Galson Estate and focusing on the

History & Genealogy, Music & Dance,

Traditional Skills, Food & Drink,

and Language & Writing.

of the area.

From 3rd - 10th September inclusive, organisations and groups from Barvas to Port of Ness hosted a range of fantastic events. There was a coastal walk with local RSPB rangers, an artist in residence and time for prayer at St Moluag's, and two pertinent talks from doctoral researchers Juliette Desportes and Ryan Dziadowiec at the Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn Business Centre. For creative types, there was Ceòl sa Cafaidh, tweed waulking and wool spinning demonstrations at Comunn Eachdraidh Nis, and a mono-printing session with local artist Elaine Smith at Clan Macquarrie Community Centre.

The Hebridean Community Garden hosted a plant swap and sale at the polycrubs, an evening showing of new documentary 'Dùthchas' was shown in Taigh Dhonnchaidh, and drop-in Gaelic lessons and archival sessions were popular at Comunn Eachdraidh Nis.

Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn would like to express their thanks to all partners, providers and attendees of Dùthchas events. We look forward to celebrating Dùthchas 2023 with you in September 2023.
