Visual-artist Judith Parrott and singer-songwriter Gillebride MacMillan collaborate to present a creative response to A' Chailleach – The Cailleach - goddess of the weather, creator of Scotland and maker of mountains. Specifically, the project explores the role of The Cailleach as weather Goddess with reference to the climate crisis and COP26. Dear Green Bothy's A' Chailleach The Cailleach will question how respect for traditional knowledge and engagement with wilderness, can inform action to the climate crisis being addressed by COP26.

Dr Alasdair Whyte will also present a lecture on The Cailleach in placenames and lore in Gaelic Scotland.
