Last Chance to See the Lewis Chessmen!
07 September 2011
Over 21,000 visitors have
seen the Lewis Chessmen: Unmasked Exhibition at Museum nan Eilean
in Stornoway - have you?!
This is the last
week of the exhibition so you still have time to
see and learn more about these iconic figures.
It will be sad to see them go but
they are planning a day of celebration at Museum nan Eilean for
their last day - Monday
12th September - so for
any visitors who pop in on the last day there will be music and
storytelling throughout the day from 10am to 5pm. Everyone is
Scotland’s Islands - the events, exhibitions and activities happening all year round.
We list every event we hear of, large and small, taking place on
the islands of Scotland or taking place elsewhere and relating to
Scotland's Islands. They provide a unique opportunity to savour the
diversity and excitement of island life. Check our our facebook
page for general updates too - http://www.facebook.com/ScotlandsIslands.
There has never been a better time for you to visit Scotland's
Islands, to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and unspoilt beaches, to
get close to dramatic wild-life, learn about our heritage,
participate in a great range of activities, and enjoy our music,
food and drink.
All this on some of our 99 inhabited islands large and small (and
many more uninhabited) accessible by sea and air in six regions:
Argyll & Bute, Highland, North Ayrshire, Orkney, Outer Hebrides
