Poolewe Gaelic Choir, 1911

A photograph, taken in 1911, of the Poolewe Gaelic Choir.

On the west coast of Scotland, Gaelic maintained a strong presence right into the twentieth century, and, indeed, the community still possesses a Gaelic Choir, which puts on performances at the local village hall.

Poolewe is located 75 miles north-west of Inverness, on the banks of Loch Ewe. Today, it is mainly known by visitors for being the closest village to the botanical gardens at Inverewe.
