The Mòd in Caithness
The Mòd, the annual national festival of Scotland's Gaelic language and culture, took place in Thurso (Inbhir Theòrsa) and Wick (Inbhir Ùige) from the 8th to the 16th of October 2010. It was the first time since the Mòd began in 1892 that this celebrated annual event had taken place in Caithness (Gallaibh).
During my visit to the festival I became aware of a strong wish that it should take place there every year from now on, such was its impact in an area long thought of as a Gaelic free zone.
I would like to express my sincerest thanks to Tegwyn Williams of St.Asaph for arranging the coach on behalf of the Pan Celtic Festival in Wales.
