Colonsay and Oronsay bilingual place-names booklet published

A NEW guide to Colonsay and Oronsay’s Gaelic place-names was launched at the Colonsay Book Festival Fringe.

The bilingual booklet, Gaelic in the Landscape: Place-names of Colonsay and Oronsay, ‘celebrates the specific cultural and natural heritage of some of Colonsay and Oronsay’s lesser-known names’.

Place-name researchers Mary Carmichael, Christine Johnston and Scott Weatherstone, with support from Dr Jacob King and Eilidh Scammell of Ainmean- Àite na h-Alba (AÀA), collected information and associated stories on more than 130 place-names from members of the community. Many have never appeared in print before.
