Episode notes

This episode is a little bit different from previous episodes.  It’s a lecture given by Lachlan (Lachie) MacLean, Lachie Knock, to the Mull Historical Society in the 1980's. The lecture has the loose title of Tales From the Glen.  Lachie talks about the origins of the clan MacLean, the struggle to keep the Gaelic language and culture alive, Glen Forsa and Glen Cannel, place names, local story tellers of his youth in Loch Buie and so, so much more.  
This recording comes from the archive of Donald MacLean, Donald Langamull, which was bequeathed to Mull Museum in Tobermory. I’m releasing this recording on the main stream of What We Do in the Winter as I think it would be of interest to so many of our listeners.  The rest of Donald Langamull’s archive will be released over the coming years in partnership with Mull Museum and can be found on both the WWDitW sound cloud and main webpage.    Thanks for listening!
