The carved fisherman overlooking the walkway is a joy and always makes me smile. I do wonder how many tourists having a stroll have taken the very same photo. You can just see the castle peeking though the trees. The spring like weather will soon be bringing all the trees into bud and the leaves will be unfurling to make a green canopy over the area and the castle will be once more screened from view.
How wonderful to be out and about once again taking in the glorious views and picking out the dream boat.
It is an established art/science project led by contemporary artists Gillian McFarland and Ione Parkin as part of the Hebridean Dark Skies Festival. Sadly my photography skills were lacking so the pictures do not portray the true standards.
We are so fortunate to have access to these wonderful exhibitions for free. There is always so much going on when you consider how small the population of these Islands are. Living life on the edge on the Outer Hebrides has lots of challenges but the lack of artistic talent is not one of them. Do you make the most of what is available in your area?
Our hens are black rocks, a wonderful hardy breed suitable for the harsh conditions of the Island and produce lovely brown eggs. We have been so blessed by them, they provide us with hours of entertainment as we watch their antics around the croft. As always I thank you for your visit and for your uplifting comments.
See you soon.
