Historic Pairc Shielings
If you can get to Stornoway on the evening of Tuesday 25 September, then make two dates at Lews Castle. At 18.00 there is the AGM of The Islands Book Trust and at 19.30 John Randall will be speaking about The Historic Shielings of Pairc. If you cannot get there, then consider purchasing his book on this unique area with a vanished culture that can be witnessed by tramping over moorland and visiting relics of a once thriving way of life. A less arduous method is to enjoy the lavishly-illustrated publication!
