Captured with my Nikon Coolpix S6200 by my assistant, DJ, a view of the clock tower of The Old Town Hall in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis in the Western Isles, Scotland. The Town Hall clock actually appears in the embedded video. For more information on the Old Town Hall and to enjoy the video of the song, “Lovely Stornoway”, sung by Callum Kennedy, please scroll down.
“Stornoway Town Hall is a former town hall in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Scotland. The first town hall on this site was completed in 1905 but was burnt down in 1918. The current building was completed in 1929. After the abolition of the Stornoway Town Council, the building was used as the home of the arts centre An Lanntair for some years and now acts as a multi-purpose venue, playing host to various commercial and community activities. The clock tower in the centre building gained some fame from the Calum Kennedy song ‘Lovely Stornoway’" (Wikipedia)
