I am Zachary Wallace, a Canadian who has just arrived in North Uist and begun working as a film and visual arts trainee at Taigh Chearsabhagh. I learnt Gaelic on my own in Ontario, where my interest was first piqued by Gaelic songs. In my first week on the island, I picked and tried out razorclams and cockles. I liked the latter, at least!

Tuesday 14th August Filmed the huge rotor blades for the Lochcarnan Community Windfarm being loaded onto lorries today.

http://vimeo.com/30320754 We set off from Lochmaddy, with packed lunches, cameras, video cameras, sketch books, and water-proof rainwear, just in case we would need it.
