CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
4 - 6 JUNE
For centuries, men from Ness on the Isle of Lewis have sailed to the tiny island of Sùlaisgeir, 40 miles north of Lewis, each summer to collect their harvest of seabirds. This event forms an integral part of the Isle of Lewis’s most northerly community and the island's culture as well as being a traditional source of food to many islanders. Dods MacFarlane has followed in the footsteps of his forefathers for over 40 years. However, this year he will lead the annual guga hunt for the last time as he steps aside to allow a new generation to continue the tradition.
