Join poet and writer Morag Henriksen on a walk around Scorrybreac as she talks about the history of the area and what influences her work.
ABOUT MORAG HENRIKSEN
Local author, Morag has written serveral books including Scenery of Dreams and Tapestry of Scenes which are a mix of her short stories and poetry, with artwork by herself and her family. Morag grew up in Lochcarron and was a teacher in Edinburgh, Portree and Uig. An artist, poet and singer, she has lived on the Isle of Skye since 1967.
The Scorrybreac circuit is a lovely walk of about 3km, just north of Portree. It is ideal as a quick leg-stretch on a dull or wet day. It is a good walk for watching the wildlife, with frequent sightings of seals, golden eagles and even sea eagles.
ATLAS Arts has collaborated with local walking groups and artists to curate a series of walks around the Isle of Skye and Lochalsh. This programme connects community, art and the environment through a series of walks designed to highlight different areas of Skye and Lochalsh and introduce participants to the work of local artists and how the environment inspires their creativity.
