This exhibition offers a unique experience of WWI through story-telling, language and poetry and and it provides an extremely expressive and insightful look at the historical identity of North Uist. See if you can find your own relatives on our map.

Interactive Fields of Poppies Launch
- 15 May 2015 7-11pm
This evening will see the sparkling launch of our 'Interactive Field of Poppies'.
This highly innovative installation plots poppies onto local interest maps such as Grimsay, North Uist and Berneray marking where deaths occurred during WWI. Multi-media material provides personal histories, research into the Gaelic language, poetry and songs, and allows for individual family trees to be traced allowing visitors to find relatives who fought in the war.
Our celebration begins with a presentation by St Andrews around their extensive involvement - and explaining the newest technologies - followed by a musical ceilidh to which CEUT members and members of the wider community will be invited.
