From the Poet's Garden

The village of Garyvard in south-east Lewis has an evocative name that derives from 'the poet's garden'. It was home to Neil Macleod who has recently received the British Empire Medal for services to crofting and the community. The place is featured on the Hebridean Connections website and the person in the Stornoway Gazette. Neil attended the former primary school at Kershader which is now part of the Ravenspoint Centre (below), a thriving centre for community activity and associated with Ravenspoint Press, the publisher of Scottish Islands Explorer magazine.
