Anyone with a passion for Uist and the Outer Hebrides, or tales to tell about the islands, is encouraged to get involved in an audio tour project.
Avid storytellers are being sought to star in the self-guided audio tour to describe places of exceptional beauty across the Islands of North and South Uist, Benbecula, Eriskay, Grimsay and Berneray.
The tour has been created to encourage more people to enjoy the islands of Uist and discover just why they are a must-see destination when visiting the Outer Hebrides.
Outer Hebrides Tourism and CalMac Ferries, creating the project, are seeking a range of contributors to bring the islands to life.
They are asked to talk up some of the most iconic beauty spots, such as the 20-mile white sandy beach of Kildonan that would rival the Caribbean and Eriskay football pitch, recognised by FIFA as one of eight unique places to play football in the world.
Volunteers will, ideally, have a strong connection with Uist, and either live on or come from the islands, and be able to bring the 20 locations featured on the audio tour to life through their knowledge and storytelling.
Contributors are being asked to send their descriptions – of roughly one minute per location – via WhatsApp to a dedicated phone line by October 31.
Andrew Macnair, head of marketing at CalMac, said: “Who better to tell the stories from the islands than those who live and breathe it every day? We are thrilled to launch this audio guide of Uist.”
