Rewatch our fantastic event, hosted by Sally Magnusson, celebrating stories from four vibrant Scottish communities as part of Book Week Scotland 2022.
Whether it's the tales from childhood that captured our imagination, the larger than life figures that helped shape our communities, or stories about coming to Scotland for the very first time, these pieces highlight Scotland's rich tradition of storytelling, paying tribute to histories already told, and those still to be written.
The wonderful pieces in this event have been generously shared by people from the Garnock Valley, Port Glasgow and Greenock, Lochgelly and the South Islands of the Western Isles. Each story was shared by a member of the public as part of Community Campfires, supported by Scotland's Year of Stories 2022.
About Scotland's Year of Stories 2022
Scotland's Year of Stories 2022 spotlights, celebrates and promotes the wealth of stories inspired, written or created in Scotland. Stories are vital to every part of Scotland. Every community has its own tales to tell, places to highlight as inspiration for well-known books and films, visitor attractions that showcase our literature, poetry and storytelling heritage and all kinds of places and spaces where stories, old and new, can be enjoyed. From icons of literature to local tales, Scotland's Year of Stories encourages locals and visitors to experience a diversity of voices, take part in events and explore the places, people and cultures connected to all forms of our stories, past and present.
