Cladaichean to laebraks

Moder Dy CIC has teamed up with MSDS Marine (Scotland) along with other archaeologists, archivists and local history societies in Shetland and Skye to deliver an innovative Scottish islands community maritime and coastal heritage project. To reflect this Scottish inter-island theme we have called our project Cladaichean to Laebraks, which means shore to surf breaks in Gaelic and Shaetlan. 

How this project is funded

Our project is part of Historic England and Historic Environment Scotland's research pilot called the Outreach to Ownership Programme funded by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). MSDS Marine (Scotland) and Moder Dy are one of five UK wide projects being hosted under this Outreach to Ownership programme.
