An addition to Burns night to celebrate the legacy of women and their connection with nature. The Nan Shepherd night was an evening that celebrated women, nature, and the life and work of Scottish 20th Century writer and poet Anna (Nan) Shepherd with Iain MacKinnon and Kirsten Norrie.

Cave of Water/ Cave of Fire: Uamh-uisge/ Uamhe-teine
summons a voice of the Scottish Highlands: Nan Shepherd, brought to life through word, music and song by poet and musician MacGillivray and Iain MacKinnon, a native of Skye, academic and writer. The cave is a theme central to Gaelic consciousness and embedded in the associations made with river, waterfall and mountain - all fundamental to the bedrock of Shepherd's walking and thinking.
