Hi there,
I am doing a thesis on small settlements within the British Isles.
As part of this I have become slightly obsessed with your lovely island! I am looking to plan a trip to Stornoway later in the year so that I can learn more.
For now, I was wondering if you kind people could give me some more information about where you live. The things I would like to ask are:
1) Do you have any customs or traditions that are particular to your part of the world?
2) What is is like living on what is considered a remote island slightly cut off from the rest of civilisation?
3) How Nomadic are your peoples? Have your family moved around, or in general, do families tend to stay on the island through generations? What is the furthest a family lineage can be traced back on the island?
4) Is Scottish Gaelic still used on a daily basis on the island?

Has the bloke got the market town of Lewes in England mixed up with Isle of Lewis, Scotland?

Most of us in Lewes have trouble tracing our lineage back to our fathers

Hi Liono
Though you may have a problem with your geographical awareness on this occasion you have been fortunate as I spent many years working as a missionary in a small and very remote village in Yorkshire.
Part of my work involved trying to educate the people out of some of their more socially unacceptable traditions. Without going into to much detail these often involved a bizarre form of hide and seek.Equally an endemic habit of being rather intimate with various domestic and farm animals. I am pleased to report some progress in eradicating these traditions.
Most of the indigenous people there have never left the village, however the village elder has just been to pontefract to get his feet sorted, the first to leave since a bloke got sent into exile for listening to radio 4.
The language used is in truth no more than grunts and unrecognisable words that sound like "eee by gum".
Anyway good luck in your research, I really would recommend visiting some of the more remote and off the beaten track destinations within our wonderful British isles. Whatever you do dont forget to take a brolly and some good wellington boots (a size too big).

Thank you all for your awesome replies! My tutor is going to be so pleased with me. He told me that Scottish people were all very friendly and helpful.
Are there any good pubs in the Stornoway area? I am 21, so only just allowed to drink, but I would happily buy you a drink for your help if you wanted to meet up!
Aiming for next March. Let me know.
I love animals too, so I think I am going to die right in.
Thanks again.

There are many fine pubs in Lewes, I hope you also make it down to our neck of the woods on your fact finding mission.
