Audio Trails for Change

Some of them have been created through collaboration between SCCAN Story Weaver team and partner community organisations. Please get in touch on if you’d like to take part in training or would like support in creating audio trails for your own community.

Tayport in 2030 (

Welcome to the walking tour of Tayport in 2030. It’s been only 9 years since the historical moment when governments from around the world got together in Glasgow for COP26, for the crucial negotiations of international action on climate. At the time scientists were telling us that we had around 10 years to bring about rapid reduction in our carbon emissions so that we can stop the worst of the climate crisis. Everyone knew it was urgent. 

The event brought this global problem right to our doorstep, and we thought it was important to show our community’s support for action on climate by throwing the Tayport Climate Festival in September 2021. Which turned out to be an amazing couple of days. In November, as COP26 negotiators gathered in Glasgow, we gathered together in the Gregory Hall to create a vision of Tayport in 2030, coming up with local solutions that our community could make happen here, and in the process, to make Tayport a better place to live for all. In January 2022 Tayport Primary added our young people’s voices to the vision for Tayport’s future too, and we continued to add others since.

Tayport Community Climate Action group emerged from all this and it has worked since to bring people, businesses, and community organisations together to make some of these ideas happen by creating Tayport Climate Action Plan and working with the council and the regional network of like-minded community groups to bring it to life.

This tour is showing off Tayport’s achievements so far.

Taking Care of Tayport (

Scottish Apple Quest ( quest)

Welcome to the Scottish Apple Quest at the Tayport’s community orchard – the Fruit Tree Walk! In ancient times, the Celts told a myth about a wonderful apple tree. To get to the land of the ever-young the Queen of the Fairies would give you, the chosen one, the Silver Bough: a magical branch. The enchanted branch would provide you with food and drink on your journey and make music so soothing, you would forget your sorrows.

For hundreds of years people have been growing apples in Scotland. Today it is almost impossible to find Scottish apples in the shops, and those we can buy don’t even grow here.

Join the quest to find out fascinating stories and facts about the Scottish apples we planted at the Fruit Tree Walk, and why eating local apples is better for you and the planet. Find all 5 stories and answer the quest questions.
