The fifth 5 Latha (5 Days) will be held again this year at the Gearrannan Blackhouses, Isle of Lewis between 4-9 April 2016.

Up to sixteen Gaelic speaking participants of high school age will have the opportunity to spend five days in a community where Gaelic is used naturally and in which crofting, fishing and the Harris Tweed industry play an important part in the lives of its residents.

Each day participants will have the opportunity to gain a hands-on experience of these traditional works, spending time with experienced individuals who will show them what is involved in their daily routines from lambing, looking after cattle, fishing, peat cutting to producing Harris Tweed.

The sixteen participants will also have the opportunity to learn some traditional recipes through practical cookery sessions using locally sourced ingredients.

Though a musical ability is not essential to attend 5 Latha, there will be music and song workshops throughout the week which will be delivered by leading Gaelic musicians.

Accommodation will be at the Gearrannan Blackhouses Isle of Lewis, with breakfast, lunch and dinner provided. A team of supervisors will be on-hand at all times.

5 Latha will cost £100 per participant, which includes; accommodation, tuition, activities and all meals.
