The seannachie

By adrian_w  
A seannachie is a traditional storyteller who is trained from a young age to pass on the stories and culture of his people. George (or Seoras as he is known in Gaelic) Macpherson, a living legend from the Highlands of Scotland, is one of the last three remaining Scottish seannachies.
He was appearing at an event at Auchendrain Museum where a group of us from the Dry Stone Walling Association were restoring a 16th century barn, and agreed to be photographed standing in front of a newly restored section of the barn.

I was awy and missed that event , just two miles from our house. Seems to have been a very colourful event and glorious weather all day. Great detail on the wall a super foil for Seoras and his tartan, look forward to seeing other images from this event.
Regards Mary

A storyteller and a story in the stones of this wall. Do you know why there's a wall across the saddle of Suilven in Assynt?
