NEW SERIES OF EILEANAN FRAOICH ON BBC ALBA EXPLORES THE DIVERSE ISLAND COMMUNITIES OF SCOTLAND

Staffin - Lachie Gillies & Heather Dewar

Heather Dewar’s island odyssey resumes this week as Eileanan Fraoich returns to BBC ALBA for a second series.

A series designed to tell the stories of an array of interesting and engaging characters across a host of Scotland’s most beautiful islands, the programmes will follow Islay-born artist and cook Heather as she visits Colonsay, Mull, North Uist and Eriskay and explores the communities of Staffin in Skye and South Lochs in Lewis.

In the first programme, Heather explores the beautiful district of Staffin in Skye, an area famed for its striking geology. She takes a trip down to the beach where dinosaur footprints have been discovered and visits the site of an old diatomite quarry.

Heather calls in on a local crofter who shows off his impressive collection of vintage tractors and meets the last farmer in Britain to swim his cattle to their winter grazing on Staffin Island. She talks to the granddaughter of Norman “Parnell” Stewart, the Valtos crofter, who spearheaded a movement against the unfair restrictions placed upon the area’s crofters by the landlord.

And finally, Heather takes a boat trip out to sea – the best place to view the full length of the Trotternish Ridge – and admires Staffin’s dramatic coastline including Kilt Rock and Galta Mòr cave.

Heather’s journey across the islands offers her an insight into life in these different communities, both past and present. While life on the edge continues to present many challenges to the islanders, her travels confirm what she already knew – that the benefits of island living more than outweigh the drawbacks.

Staffin - Lachie Gillies & Heather Dewar

Anns an dàrna sreath de “Eileanan Fraoich” tha Fraoch Nic an Deòir à Ìle a’ fàgail cofhurtachd a dachaigh airson cuairt tro na h-eileanan. Tha i a’ tadhal air Colbhasaigh, Muile, Uibhist a Tuath agus Èirisgeigh, sgìre Stafainn san Eilean Sgitheanach agus fearann na Pàirc ann an Leòdhas.

Sa phrògram seo tha Fraoch ann an sgìre àlainn Stafainn, a tha ainmeil airson annasachd na cloiche. Tha i a’ coiseachd na tràghad far an d’ fhuairear làrach spògan dìneasair, agus a’ faicinn seann chuairidh diatomite.

Tha i a’ tadhal air cruitear a tha a’ sealltainn dhi fìor chruinneachadh de sheann thractaran, agus a’ coinneachadh ris an tuathanach mu dheireadh ann am Breatainn a tha a’ toirt air a’ chrodh snàmh gu ionaltradh a’ gheamhraidh, air Eilean Stafainn. Tha i a’ còmhradh ri ogha Thormoid “Parnell” Stiùbhart à Bhaltos, an cruitear à Bhaltos a bh’ air ceann iomairt an aghaidh nam bacaidhean anaceart a bha an t-uachdaran a’ sparradh air na cruitearan.

Tha i a’ feuchainn a-mach ann an eathar – ’s ann far druim a’ chuain as fheàrr a chì thu beanntan Thròndairnis – agus a’ faighinn deagh shealladh de Chreag an Fhèilidh agus Uamh Ghalta Mhòr.

Tha cuairt Fhraoich tro na h-eileanan a’ toirt dhi sealladh air coimhearsnachdan eadar-dhealaichte, mar a bha is mar a tha. Ged a tha beatha air an oir a’ cur iomadh dùbhlan mu choinneamh nan eileanach, tha a cuairt a’ dearbhadh rud a b’ aithne dhi mu thràth - gur motha na buannachdan, ann a bhith a’ fuireach air eilean, seach na duilgheadasan.
