Davine Sutherland

Davine grew up in Hilton and has a deep sense of attachment to the place where she comes from. She is a tour guide and scholar of the local vernacular Gaelic which was the language of the Seaboard villages until the mid-twentieth century. Gaelic lives on in place-names, nicknames and dialect terms which are used frequently today in everyday speech. Davine’s knowledge of the language enriches her understanding of the past and present landscapes of this area.
