Loch na Steall - a-mach an gleann: screenprints
15 x 11cm
The quote is from 'Lewis Shielings' by Donald Macdonald, The Review of Scottish Culture (ROSC) No 1, 1984. Loch na Steall (NB 3237) is marked on OS maps as Loch nan Stearnag: being in the central moorland, it may been named differently by people in different parts of the island.

'‘S ann air Feadan Leìt a bha an airigh againn'
'a fragrant deer-grass bed'
Samhradh cridheach
An canach geal
cho geal ri canach an t-slèibhe
feasgar samhradh
'Cha robh càil air an àirigh ach sàmhchar'
bog asphodel
'the shieling was a marvellous place'
'days of joy'
