Arran is of special interest to national DNA project

Arran residents whose grandparents were born before 1935 are being urged to take part in a national DNA project to map out Scotland’s genetic history. The island has been listed as a region of particular interest owing to its diversity of settlers who spoke Norse, Gaelic and Scots.

Living DNA’s One Family Scottish research project, in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde and Scottish Association of Family History Societies, has launched a nationwide appeal to collect DNA samples from 3,000 Scottish people whose grandparents were born before 1935 and all lived within 50 miles (80km) of each other.
