Posted on behalf of Iain Johnston.
I am working in the Kintyre & Gigha area on an exciting new project which aims to gather many stories and memories from across the West Coast of Scotland.
Do you have any stories and memories you would like to share to encourage locals and visitors to explore our coastline?
The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) need your help to paint a picture of the area and how this beautiful part of Scotland has had an impact across the globe.
Your story could be one of 20 selected from Kintyre and Gigha to be included in an interactive app and would then be part of an exhibition in key locations across the west coast in 2021.
The Coast that Shaped the World is an ambitious three year project which bridges the Year of Coasts and Waters in 2020 and the Year of Scottish Stories in 2022.
You can find out more about the project and take part in the survey at
Nothing is too big or too small, too detailed or too vague. So please get in touch with me on messenger, email or phone me at 01586 552034 with any questions or for more information on how to take part.
The project is led by the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) and is being funded through NatureScot’s Natural and Cultural Heritage Fund, with match funding from CalMac and UHI.

The story gathering stage of the project runs from Dec – Feb 2021 so either fill out the survey with the information or contact me and I will help make sure your story is included.

I will share the project social media channels shortly as they have more information on how to take part.
