People running businesses or working in tourism in the National Park are invited to attend a free workshop offering a one hour taster session on the Gaelic heritage of the National Park, particularly featuring place names. The session will be held on:
Tuesday 18th April 12:30 – 1:30pm at the National Park HQ, Carrochan Road, Balloch
This workshop is aimed at those who work in the tourism industry giving an introduction to Gaelic sounds and pronunciations of the many place names in Gaelic. Visitors to the area are interested in the local heritage and this will help you when it comes to engaging with them about Gaelic place names, and giving an insight into the rich Gaelic cultural history of the National Park.
The workshop will be led by Linda Macleod. Linda is a fantastic teacher, an award winning musician and BBC ALBA television presenter. In 2015 she won the Young Gaelic Ambassador of the Year Award for her outstanding contribution to Gaelic culture and music. Linda leads a range of Gaelic Awareness workshops for organisations across Scotland and we are delighted that she is coming to the National Park.
