The Harris Tweed® Journal

Cladach

22nd September

Cladach
Shore / Stony Beach
/kLadəx/

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

A word that perfectly describes the sound of its meaning: the clatter and fall of rounded pebbles and rocks as they tumble with retreating waves, their many colours merging into a shiny blur of movement.

Our Gaelic Coastal Word of the Week comes from “Scotland’s Nature Agency, Buidheann Nàdair na h-Alba”
