Walking around Stornoway

After feeding me a large, delicious breakfast (with white pudding - or marag geal as it's called. YUM!) Donnie's mother offered to drive me into town (not a very far distance) so that I could walk around the town. I went to the museum and walked around to the shops and such.
Many of the shops had Gaelic signs.

The ferry.

A cake I saw in a window.

Walking towards Lewes Castle.

Failte gu Mod 2011!

Large reproductions of the Lewis Chessmen  at a coffee shop near the castle.

A wicker woman! 

A hooded crow!!!!

One of the gates to the castle.



  1. Oh my gosh! So many interesting things! How exciting to be surrounded by Gaelic! I love the wicker woman and the hooded crow!

  2. Ok, I got Post Office, but how about the other Gaelic sign? Place of work and other? Help!

  3. WOW! Those chessman are very loveable. :-) And that wicker woman is stunning! Puts my humble corn dolly to shame! :-)

  4. These pictures are awesome! I especially love the giant, turning wicker woman. It's totally spooky and great! Why were there so many art pieces around?
