Clachan Sìnteag

23rd June

From the land, comes the cloth, comes the language…

Clachan Sìnteag (/kLaxan ʃiːndʲag/)
“Stepping Stones”

Stepping stones, desire lines across watery roads.

Venturing across the burn, water rushing past your foothold of security, taking one step at a time and savouring each moment of solidity until the last expanse before the heathery bank, and then a leap!

Our Gaelic Moorland Word of the Week comes from Rathad an Isein, The Bird’s Road: a Lewis Moorland Glossary, a compilation by Anne Campbell.
