Cnoc Soilleir

A joint venture with a shared vision

Dachaigh ùr

’S e iomairt chompàirteachaidh eadar Ceòlas Uibhist agus Colaisde a’ Chaisteil UHI a th’ ann an Cnoc Soilleir. Suidhichte sa choimhearsnachd as treasa sa Ghàidhlig, brosnaichidh an t-ionad dualchas agus cànan Gàidhlig na coimhearsnachd.

’S e amas a’ phròiseict ionad a stèidheachadh air a’ Chnoc Shoilleir ann an Dalabrog, le goireasan air an dealbhachadh a dh’aona-ghnothach airson feumalachdan foghlaim LCC/UHI agus tachartasan coimhearsnachd Cheòlais timcheall air ionnsachadh na Gàidhlig, dualchas, cultar, ceòl is dannsa Gàidhealach.

Cnoc Soilleir is an exciting joint venture between Ceòlas Uibhist and Lews Castle College UHI (LCC/UHI). Located in the Gaelic heartland of South Uist, Cnoc Soilleir will promote and celebrate the community’s Gaelic cultural heritage.

The project will establish a new focal building at Cnoc Soilleir (the placename meaning “the bright hill”) in Daliburgh, with facilities that have been designed to meet the needs of both LCC/UHI’s educational programmes, and Ceòlas’ community-led activities around Gaelic language learning, heritage, culture, music and dance.
