Later this week people from GalGael (www.galgael.org) on Glasgow's Clydeside will be helping local crofters and residents in their efforts to stabilise sand dunes on the coasts of South Uist. It is hoped that the GalGael folk will work with local people to build sand blow fencing at Kilphedar and further north on the Bornish machair coast. They will have a lot to learn from each other about the different and in some ways similar challenges they face.

The work is part of Oxfam Scotland's Climate Change Adaptations and Developing Livelihoods project which has received funding from the People's Postcode Lottery. CoastHebrides is providing advice and assistance to project work along with Lochboisdale Community Amenity Trust who are partners in the project.
