Join fine artist Diana Mackie on a journey beginning at the Fairy Bridge, Waternish. Find out what inspires and influences her practice.

ABOUT DIANA MACKIE
Diana is a contemporary landscape artist, her work is concerned with the fleeting nuances of climatic change and the differing moods of the sea and sky. Her paintings encompass distant forms of Hebridean Islands and their extensive shorelines.

ABOUT THE FAIRY BRIDGE AND BAY, WATERNISH
The starting point for any exploration of Waternish is the junction where the single track B886 turns off the main road a little over three miles northeast of Dunvegan.  A short distance along the road you pass the now disused “Fairy Bridge”, built in the early 1800s and apparently named because it was believed to be the haunt of fairies. The bridge crosses the Bay River, and we will car share to the Bay turnoff along the river’s right bank and walk down towards the head of Loch Bay which, confusingly, is a loch and not a bay. As you do so the views open out to reveal the whole of the west side of the peninsula and the islands of Isay, Mingay and Clett which help divide the outer reaches of Loch Bay from those of Loch Dunvegan.

All walks are FREE
