Last week I returned from an amazing 5 day trip living on the Isle of Eigg.
The purpose of the trip was to install and exhibit an exhibition titled ‘Waypoints’ our response as artists to the residency we took part in with the Clipperton Project around the Northern Isles of Scotland.
It was also a brilliant excuse to have a reunion with all the other artists who had been on the boat!
And so it turns out the Isle of Eigg is very beautiful!
We climbed, we hiked to the top of two summits; An Sgurr and the Gods Finger lookout, we walked around the whole Island, made friends with the locals, installed our Waypoints exhibition with great success and lived in a beautiful Bothy on the south side of the Island for the week. My kind of lifestyle.
Eigg is impressive and here are some photos of my trip to show why!
I’ll be back to Eigg at the very start of January where I’ll be Artist in Residence at Sweeney’s Bothy with the Bothy Project. I cannot wait!
