Coastal Knowledge

Mangersta Bothy

When preparing travels to the Outer Hebrides I found a blog on a bothy which was build by the Norgrove family. The bothy is a truly unique place to stay, and the story behind it is even more special: the Norgrove family tragically lost their daughter Linda during her humanitarian work in Afghanistan and set-up a foundation to remember her and continue her important work: https://lindanorgrovefoundation.org/ It is a place and a story I will never forget and it shows how Scotland and its people are connected to the world.

This page is part of Coastal Knowledge, an online exhibition mapping some of the amazing places on the coast of Scotland.  It includes pictures, memories, artworks, stories and videos submitted by a variety of people including scientists, artists, coastal dwellers, tourists, and community organisations.  We want to share the beauty of the Scottish coast, but also its vital role in the day-to-day lives of people in Scotland- for example, its many industrial roles.

This exhibition is dynamic and ongoing- and we’d love for you to share contributions for it too!  To learn more and submit your own coastal knowledge, visit the main page of the exhibition.
