Tha an Gille Dubh/Glèidheadair na Coille cho dubhach is e ag ionndrainn nan craobhan is a chuideachd a chaidh am fuadachadh, gu bheil e air a dhachaigh anns a’ choille a thrèigsinn gus suidhe na aonar ar bharr beinne, a’ fàgail nan àilleagan uile aige aig Sìne, airson a sgeulachd a innse is eòlas air bhuannachdan ar craobhan dùthchasach a sgapadh.
An Gille Dubh / The Guardian of the Trees, saddened by the clearing of his beloved trees and people, has left his forest home to sit alone atop the highest mountains, leaving his beautiful, prized possessions to Sìne to tell his tale and spread knowledge of the riches of our native trees.
“A big hit, they loved handling the props!'” “New & exciting to the students” P3/4 Teachers, Holme Primary

“Good discussion generated on return to class” C3/4 Teacer, Duncan Forbes Primary
