Friday photo: Having fun on the Lews Castle lawns

As many prepare for Hebridean Celtic Festival in Stornoway this weekend its worth remembering that the Castle has seen many other celebration, including Tattoos and, as this week’s image shows, gymkhanas!

If you are attending Heb Celt this weekend, keep an eye out for the Lews Castle Museum & Archive project tent where Heritage Officer Angus and Anna will be on hand to tell you about what’s happening with the Castle project across the islands and where various fun and game will be taking place!

This image is from the James Shaw Grant collection held by the archives and is (c) Stornoway Gazette.  It will feature in the displays of the new museum and archive at the Castle when it opens in autumn 2015!
