November Eve

In this video, with an original audio recording by Peigi Macrae, we see that on the Island of South Uist the Scottish Halloween tradition of Guising or ‘galoshin’ was alive and well for young residents. By dressing in old clothes and painting their faces they could venture out safely without being detected by wicked ghouls. However, they were expected to perform with a song or poem before receiving any treats!
