Outer Hebrides Artwork - 0723
The Outer Hebrides, are an outstanding and uniquely distinctive part of Scotland.
Their remoteness has contributed to the preservation of a unique coastline, where their legends weave through a tapestry of lives lived in close coexistence with the land and the sea
Outer Hebrides Artwork - 0728
I dreamed that live and time and space were one, And the pure trance of dawn;
From all the journeys of the travelling sun, And the Long mysteries of sound and sight,
The Whispering rains, And far, calm waters set in lonely plains, And cry of birds at night.
More songs of Angus and others – Violet Jacob

Had I a cave on some wild, distant shore, Where the winds howl to the waves' dashing roar;
There would I weep my woes, There seek my lost repose, Till grief my eyes should close
Had I A Cave – Robert Burns
