Just a reminder (as I’ve been asked about this a few times recently) that John MacLean Photography provides professional photographic services throughout the Western Isles/Outer Hebrides, including the Isle of Barra, Vatersay, Eriskay, North & South Uist, Benbecula, Berneray, Harris and of course Lewis, where I’m based. I am happy to travel up and down the length of the Hebrides at any time of year (it can be a real adventure in winter!) and also enjoy visiting the remoter islands, like the Shiant Isles and St Kilda.

I am well accustomed to taking on commissions at short notice, working to tight deadlines and enjoy meeting and engaging with people in the island communities in which I live and work.

If you need photographic work done quickly and to a professional standard, in the first instance please call me on 01851 820441 / 07468 297727 or use the Contact form to drop me a line and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can (normally within 24 hours).

Duilleag Beatha

By John MacLean, 04/03/12:

 

A new collection of Gaelic poems and songs by Lewisman Uilleam Aonghas MacMhathain (William Angus Matheson) was launched in Stornoway Library on 2nd March.

Born in Airigh a’ Bhruaich (at which village the book cover image was taken), Uilleam now lives in Point, Isle of Lewis.

This, his first published collection of poems and songs, is also available in electronic format from Amazon, for use with the Kindle eReader.

       William Angus Matheson has won many awards at The Royal National Mod for his poetry and songs, and his songs have been recorded by Gaelic singers including Fiona J MacKenzie and Paul MacCallum.

‘Duilleag Beatha’ is a highly accessible and readable book that features bardachd and songs in traditional Gaelic style on subjects including love, longing, war, spirituality and humour.

Peter Urpeth, who manages the Clò Fuigheagan imprint on behalf of HI~Arts, said:

‘Duilleag Beatha’ is the long-overdue first collection of poems and songs by William Angus Matheson. It is a collection that has direct appeal to all Gaelic readers and those who love the language and culture of the Gael. The poems are accessible, memorable and written with a love of the Gaelic language that is palpable.
