I am Pàdruig MacIllechiar (Peter Kerr) and I live and work in Eilean Siar, the Western Isles, where my ancestors lived and worked a quarter of a millennium ago.


I am member of the Uist Writer's Group at Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre in Lochmaddy, North Uist, where I coordinated and presented a monthly live music event, Taigh Ciùil.


In addition to my creative writing, including poetry, I also am an experienced researcher specialising in the social and economic history of the Western Isles of Scotland and am actively involved in community development.
