Contin Community Council

'What Contin means to me...' - stories, memories & history

Over the last year, we've been talking with and listening to residents to gather stories and memories about the people and the area.  We've heard a lot of fascinating things, have shared photographs, and we've chatted about what makes the Contin special to people who live, or have lived, in the area.

We're creating videos of what we've found and we will be publishing booklets, as well, over the next few months.  We've also produced a leaflet about the parish's 'hidden gem' - Contin island.  This leaflet illustrates the island's paths, and also highlights some of the village's history, folklore and wildlife.


See some short videos about the the village and its inhabitants:

The leaflet can be downloaded here (in English) and here (in Gaelic)  Both will be available as a hard-copy leaflet when the Covid-19 restrictions have eased.  We hope you enjoy them! 

Tha a’ Chomhairle Choimhearsnachd airson a’ Ghàidhlig agus a dualchas a bhrosnachadh anns an sgìre seo. Seo bileag Eilein Chunndainn ann an Gàidhlig.

We're grateful for funding from Foundation Scotland from the EDF-Renewables Corriemoillie Contin Community Fund and Bòrd na Gàidhlig for support in producing this leaflet and the What Contin Means to me project.
