Part of my clan is from Barra though my family is mainly from Gigha but it really is a lovely place. I recommend going to Kismul castle!!!

snog could be pretty ,bonny or beautiful - nice just means precise or exact.

Hamish- sorry, I'm not tracking. If something is nice then it's precise? I don't think I've ever heard that use of the word?

It's not common in US English, but it definitely can be used that way. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/nice

Is Barra a name or a place?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ionnsaiche

It's one of the southern islands of the Outer Hebrides.

The recording sounds as if the microphone was under several blankets - it needs to be replaced
