Eilidh’s Memorial Design Revealed

We have some massive news to share with you all. We can reveal what the Eilidh memorial will look like.
This is a big moment for us all at Eilidh’s Trust and is the culmination of many months of hard work by so many people including Eilidh’s family, her friends and the wider community . We are so grateful to many people who have helped us get to this point.
Thank you to the Guth Bharraidh for allowing us to spread the news about the design to the community before anyone else. Eoin and the team at the Guth have been hugely supportive of our aims and objectives from the start. Also, we cannot thank the wider Barra and Vatersay community enough for everything they have done for us.
This memorial is very special and we believe it captures the spirit and ethos of Eilidh.
Suzanne White, founder and trustee of Eilidh’s Trust said: “Our intention for the sculpture of a young female piper is to ensure that Eilidh’s life and her legacy are celebrated appropriately. The design has really captured her spirit and created a striking memorial to a very special young girl.
“It is a beautiful design which honours the community values of unity, love, support and a willingness to help others whilst at the same time capturing Eilidh’s passion for music.“
Suzanne added: “Our intention is that the memorial will provide the communities of Barra and Vatersay and those from further afield with a place of quiet reflection and inspiration.”
This is only the first stage of the memorial, we have so much more to tell you, but we will be better placed to do that in the coming weeks and months. In the meantime please read what the Guth has reported and keep in touch to hear further progress.
