Charitable donations, activities and commemorative work
An Ti Son Muintntir Asaint (The land with the people of Assynt)
Siol nan Gaidheal is proud to have been able to contribute not only financially but ideologically to the successful buy out of their land by the crofters of Assynt.
This substantial victory, we hope, will be the first of many and that we will see the pattern of land ownership in Scotland changing. However with the ownership of land comes responsibility, not only for the land but to our language and people and to the ancestors from whom we derive our nationhood.
In celebrating this victory we should remember our heroes in the struggles to reclaim our land, heroes such as John MacPherson of Glendale, the people of Braes and the Seven Men of Knoydart.
Is treasa tuath na tighearna.
The people of the land are mightier than the lairds.
A plaque was unveiled at Stracathro Kirk on September 15th 2006, to commemorate the submission of King John Balliol to Edward I of England. This led to John's abdication from the throne, which was claimed by the hero King Robert the Bruce in 1306. Members of Siol nan Gaidheal, the minister and a class of local school children attended the unveiling of the plaque.
