Artists in Poet's Garden

Garyvard - or the Poet's Garden - is situated in the South Lochs of the Isle of Lewis. It was the small port that served the area before its road system was transformed. Now three buildings have created a very special environment there, thanks to the inspiration of Duane Mead, the Director of the Rendezvous Gallery in Aberdeen. First came the renovation of a house - Tigh Alasdair Ruariadh - providing accommodation for artists; then in the garden a workshop for them (pictured below); and now the Garyvard Gallery (above) which is the subject of a preview video in the Stornoway Gazette.
