Our storytellers

Paraig MacNeil

Where east meets west, a Gael on his father’s side, a Fifer on his mother’s side, born in Stirling in 1955, but raised, in Perthshire’s Strathallan, spinner o’ yarns and weaver o’ words, Paraig MacNeil is Scotland rolled into one.

Jess Smith

Jess is happy telling any kind of story, especially if she can get inside its character. However, her true gift lies in the rich kist of Traveller tales she has gathered since she was a child. If she likes a story and can live the part of its characters then she will enjoy the telling of it.

Ruth Kirkpatrick

Ruth likes to tell all kinds of stories, Scottish and international, to all kinds of audiences, young and old. Over the years she has developed a magpie like quality for finding a ‘gem’ of a story for any setting.

David Campbell

David Campbell's repertoire of tales ranges from ancient Celtic epics of Ireland and Scotland, through stories of adventure and romance, of faith and love, to humorous anecdotes and quirky comic tales.

Bob Pegg

Bob Pegg’s storytelling is interwoven with music and song, and his stories come from the Highlands – selkies, last wolves, fairy people – and from across the northern climes.

What users are saying

Fabulous idea having stories about the area. The audio was very clear and lovely for a long trip.

Really useful app for any people who want a handy way to explore the country.

The app works offline which is what travelling the Scottish Highlands has always needed. Well done.

The songs made me want to come back.
