Annie and Jenny start to explore the relationship between Highland clans and land. We begin by discussing the Gaelic concept of Dùthchas, learning more about how clans divided up their territories.
We then move to the legend of Diarmuid Ua Duibhne and Gràinne. We glance at the connection between Ireland and Scotland, and how legends shape our clan identities.
Look out for these Gaelic phrases-
Dualchas: heritage or tradition.
Dùthchas: place of birth, hereditary rights to land, birth-tie.
Fàilte is furan: a warm welcome!
Geas: a curse, spell or enchantment.
Slàinte mhath: good health, cheers! A toast to your health.
