This is a podcast about Gometra and Roc Sandford from a series of podcasts on the Soundcloud app, recorded by Alasdair and Georgia Satchel from Dervaig about the lives of people of the Isles of Mull, Iona, Ulva and Gometra.
In this particular podcast, Roc – who bought Gometra in the 1980’s and was very kind in letting us make Gometra our home – explains how he came to buy Gometra, the history of the island and its numerous clan owners, his own very surprising familial connection with the island, and the totally fascinating background of his own family – which includes the first person credited with having installed a bath in a caravan!
We even get a mention at the very end of the podcast, (not that that is important obviously).
I found this podcast purely by accident, but I will go on to listen to the rest, which give a spectacular insight into the lives of the people who live and work on the islands and their stories. The link to the podcast about Gometra on soundcloud can be found at the bottom. But the website for all the podcasts by Alasdair and Georgia can be found at What We Do In The Winter.
