• Peter MArtin the SIXTH

    This website is dedicated to the memory of Peter Martin who passed away suddenly, at home, in September 2015. He was a true gentleman and a friend to many. His research into Gaelic strength culture and traditional stone lifting was without equal. He shared his research and passion freely with many people throughout the world and never asked for anything in return.


    He reserved a special affection for the Gaels. He made many trips to North Uist and spoke with the elders there who remembered the Gaelic strength culture from their youth. They thought highly of Peter and named him 'Am Bodach An Clachan' The Old Man Of The Stones.


    It is with the kind permission of Peter's family that some of his research work is shared here for the ongoing enjoyment and education of those who shared his passion.
