Lews Castle, Stornoway - Late Evening by 

Featured in YOUR COUNTRY’S BEST on 7 June 2014 and “Country of the Week” in Editors Choice for the week ending 9 June 2014 in THE WORLD AS WE SEE IT OR AS WE MISSED IT. Also featured in HISTORIC SITES on 29 June 2014!

The Outer Hebrides lie just below the Arctic Circle off the North-West coast of Scotland, a consequence of which is very long hours of darkness in winter and an “almost midnight sun” in summer. This shot was taken around 9.00 pm with my Nikon Coolpix S6200 camera. For more information on Lews Castle, click on the following link:-

My life is divided between teaching Music and Photography. The instruments I play are organ, piano, clarinet and saxophone. I taught German and Spanish before my retirement, but since I got my digital camera no longer have time for them!

    Amazing site to see! Beautiful capture, must be incredible in person! xoxoxoxoxxo

  • Thank you, Shar. It is very nice to walk there in the cool of the evening during spring and early summer, until the midges make their appearance. Their bites can be very nasty! Hugs, Kathryn

  • Thank you, Heloisa. Unfortunately it was closed to the public due to renovations, when we went there, but at least the grounds were open.

    A lovely shot in beautiful light. You are so lucky Kathryn to have all these castles.

  • Thank you, Ralph. There are a lot of problems with photographing them, though. I did not see any signs forbidding photography with this one, so just went ahead.

    What a dreamy place!! Your image is beautiful, and I was happy to read via your link that this castle is still being used and maintained!

  • Thank you, Jade. It was willed to the people of Stornoway for their use as a park, so access to the grounds is unrestrictived and they are extensive, well maintained and very beautiful.
