Project Description

Gaelic in the Landscape

Overview

From place-names to folklore, Callander has a rich Gaelic heritage that is familiar to locals and visitors alike, but not always well understood. This project aims to harness the community’s interest in the Gaelic language through artistic engagement, local place-name research, and a range of volunteering opportunities.

Aims & Objectives

This project will:

  • Provide training in the Gaelic language for local volunteers, helping them to lead guided walks on place-name trails around Callander;
  • Work with the community and local schools to create artistic interpretations of Callander’s Gaelic heritage;
  • Preserve locally important Gaelic words and place-names through the creation of a Gaelic Word-Hoard;
  • Promote the use of Gaelic as an active living language.
