Having graduated from the School of Scottish Studies at Edinburgh University, Kirsty moved back home to North Uist, where she began working as an Education Outreach Officer for the local museum/gallery Taigh Chearsabhagh. She has been involved in several community projects, and latterly co-ordinated the cataloguing of the Tobar an Dualchais/Kist o Riches project which digitised and made available online the folklore collections from the School of Scottish Studies.
