Dedication...becoming who we are

room 10 ECHOES

Ballintuim, Strathardle

These sound tracks have been compiled by artist Liz Crichton from autobiographical interviews with people baptized as infants at St Michael and All Angels, Ballintuim. Read more about this project or listen from your computer here:

Each person was asked to talk about their life, what had influenced them and what had made them who they are, and what traces may they leave behind. Starting at the font of the church in Ballintuim and ending in the graveyard at Kirkmichael, the audio trail had been designed to be an immersive and emotional listening experience, stimulating a sustained time based and ordered engagement with other peoples stories.

You are invited to make a pilgrimage along the Cateran trail from Ballintuim to Kirkmichael listening to the audio tracks, and reflecting on them in these beautiful surroundings, to perhaps discover something not just about those who were interviewed, but also about yourself.

Come and share in the tracks and traces of those who traveled this road ahead of you

With grateful thanks to Delia Napier and Ettrick, Michael Nairn, Melinda Measor, John Kiszley, Caroline Steel, Neil Constable, Simon Fairclough, Kerry Faucett-Reid and Erica Hunter for agreeing to share their thoughts with us all.

The Echoes


Welcome to this trail. As you walk you will listen to the thoughts shared by each of the participan…

I used to think of myself as fun

Listen to what these people have to share... think what you might have said...

The only thing I ever wanted to do...

Traditionally, a pilgrimage is a journey or search of moral or spiritual significance

It's not related to financial reward

What does life mean to you?

When my marriage split up...

What or who is important to you?
