Derek Robertson – Bho Bheul An Eòin, From The Bird’s Mouth

Featuring 40 of Derek Robertson’s paintings, ‘Bho Bheul An Eòin’ gives Gaelic names to animals and plants newly established in Scotland. Project supported by NatureScot and Bòrd na Gàidhlig.

A language holds its own traditions and treasures. In Scots Gaelic, the word dualchas encompasses the intimate bonds that exist between the natural world, the land and its people – connecting through language, tradition and culture from generation to generation. The Gaelic names of the animals and plants that inhabit that landscape are a part of that tradition and reflect aspects of these relationships.

In recent times, a number of wildlife species have appeared in Scotland as our climate changes, or otherwise helped there by human agency, and some are so new to Scotland they don’t yet have a Gaelic name, which is something this exciting project is beginning to address.

From the Bird’s Mouth, Bho Bheul an Eòin, is naming the new.  Through a process of research and consultation, with advice from scientists, researchers and Gaelic writers, the project will give Gaelic names to these colonisers.
