From industrial designer to tour guide to gardener; Alistair’s life has taken him through many twists and turns from his origins in Glasgow until he settled in Arran 20 years ago. His interest in local history and culture inspired him to take his first steps into learning Gaelic. It was love at first sight and from then on there was no turning back.
He has been a regular contributor of essays, reviews, poetry and short stories to the online Gaelic magazine Dàna. In 2018 he was a winner of The New Writers Awards and has worked on a range of materials since then including; fiction, poetry, and play writing. At the Gaelic Literature Awards 2020 he won Best Unpublished Manuscript for Adults for Linne Dhomhainn.
