Title:Màiri Robasdan (1)
Short url:
Summary:Part of the Stòras Beò nan Gàidheal project in which the UHI Language Sciences Institute with Sabhal Mòr Ostaig and Soillse, together with Irish partners, record the natural speech of Irish and Scottish Gaelic speakers in their own communities with user-friendly equipment and techniques. Here, in the first part, Mary Robertson from Benbecula, talks about her family and her memories of her early schooldays in Torlum. Her father was a gamekeeper for the South Uist estate. Leaving at 15 to get further training at Duncraig Castle was a shock. She describes the daily routine there. After that she worked in Edinburgh for two years before moving to Fort William to do hotel work, where she found more of an island community.
Language notes:A two-way conversation in which Archie Campbell questions Mary Robertson on her recollections and opinions on growing up on Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides and wherever else her life took her.
