Tiree Maritime Trust is a registered charity based on the Isle of Tiree. It was founded in 2005 and its main aims are:
“(1) To advance education, training and pass on skills in traditional boat building and boat maintenance,
(2) To encourage the preservation of the traditional wooden working boats of Tiree and the maritime heritage that surrounds them,
(3) To encourage local interest in the maritime heritage of Tiree as a recreational activity in the interest of social welfare”
The Song of the Sea project was a Tiree Maritime Trust project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.A group of young people worked with Jack Lockhart to research Tiree’s maritime heritage at An Iodlhann, record interviews and document events throughout the year. The young people also worked with Jamie MacDonald to write a new piece of music for the film.
The film was an opportunity for the group to learn more about their own heritage, collect stories and learn new skills in the process.
