Psalm Boat project Journal 2011-2023



The Psalm Boat Project commemorates the custom of travelling to church services by boat on the sea lochs of Lewis and Harris and Gaelic psalm singing at the end of the Communion Season as they sailed to home ports.  In 2011 the psalm boat community began in Keose on the shores of Loch Erisort in Lochs. The community group have staged re-enactments in boats in 2013 and 2015 and travelled to other communities around sea lochs to gather and share stories, while singing Gaelic psalms in the open air as was once the custom in the lives of islanders.

The 20 page project journal Na h-Eathraichean Psalm Boat Community is in English includes blogs by Magaidh Smith and pictures by Mairi M Martin Photography.
