MhicAoidh a-rèir GOC (mar ainm co-dhiù) ach ‘s dòcha gum bi tùsan eadar-dhealaichte ann mar ainm-àite.

Aidh, sin a' cheist a bh' agam cuideachd! Cha robh fhios agam an leanadh e riaghailt nan ainmean pearsanta gus nach leanadh!

Ainmean-Àite na h-Alba

A bheil eòlas agad mu ainmean-àite Èirisgeidh? Bidh Ceòlas a' dèanamh rannsachadh às leth nam buidhnean Ainmean-Àite na h-Alba agus Scottish Natural Heritage mu na h-ainmean a th' ann san eilean agus na sgeulachdan co-cheangailte riutha. Eadar seo agus deireadh an t-Sultain, bithear a' clàradh agallamhan le daoine a tha eòlach mun eilean agus thèid iad a chur am broinn leabhair ùir san t-sreath 'Ainmean-àite' le SNH.

How knowledgeable are you of Eriksay's placenames - the moor, the hills, the sgeirean? Ceòlas is working with AÀA and SNH to record these placenames, and the stories associated with them. Between now and the end of September, we'll be recording interviews with people, which will eventually be published in SNH's free series on Gaelic placenames.

An Easgainn, Glaic na Còmhraig, Tobar na Rèilig, Carraig Iain is Rathad Khissling... cò mheud dhiubh as urrainn dhuinn a chruinneachadh?
