Using recordings from the Tobar an Dualchais website

Recordings hosted on the Tobar an Dualchais (Kist o Riches) website are generously made available to us by our three archive partners – the School of Scottish Studies Archives (SSSA) at the University of Edinburgh, the BBC, and the Canna Collection (National Trust for Scotland).

Third-party use of these recordings is possible, consent of all copyright holders permitting. If you would like to request use of the recordings, the protocol for the individual collections is as follows:

School of Scottish Studies Archives

If requesting permission for publication, broadcast, or use in a public setting, please complete this online form on the SSSA website.

If requesting a copy for private study or non-commercial research, please complete this online form on the SSSA website.

Please be aware that this process can take up to three weeks, but the staff do their best to process these requests quicker.

Material from the BBC and Canna Collection

To request use of recording from these two collections, please email , specifying the recordings sought and where and how you plan to use them. We will then approach our partners and other copyright holders to request use of them.

It is advisable that you request use of the recordings as early as possible to ensure that our team and our partners have sufficient time to process the request and to contact the relevant parties. A request for use does not guarantee that you will obtain permission to use the recordings – copyright holders can and do refuse permission for reuse.
