About the project

A Company of Mountains

Alec Finlay’s còmhlan bheanntan | a company of mountains is a collaborative project comprising poems, photos, essays and “word-mntn’ drawings.” The project’s title is taken from Sorley Maclean’s poem “Ceann Loch Aeoineart.”

Working with other artists, Alec Finlay has selected 14 sites, or conspectuses, on the Isle of Skye from which to explore the mountains, history, culture and mythology of the island.
