The Uist trip

Last year I was on North Uist with Alec Finlay for the Langass Wood project, where we and others wove the names and sounds of the natural landscape into poems, with the help of local schools. I enjoyed it so much that this year I took Jane over to show her the unique landscape that I came to love. The weather wasn’t particularly kind – most days we had showers of varying intensity – but there were enough sunny interludes to show the place off at its best.  We bumped into old friends from Dunbar who moved there a couple of years ago, so we had cheery company when we wanted it.  We walked across the machair, taking delight in the wild flowers and the birds, We went back to Langass Wood, seeing for the first time the letterboxes we planned last year; going back to the amazing dolmen at the top of the hill, surely a Neolithic grave site;  snapping the new interpretation board at the start of the woodland walk, where the willows planted by the pupils have established. Here are a few of the many photos I took on the trip.
