To The Lighthouse

I have just been listening to a new adaption of “To The Lighthouse”, Virginia Woolf’s famous modernist novel of 1927 set on the Isle of Skye.

The west coast of Scotland comprises a number of bioregions which share similar characteristics. Hearing Woolf’s poetic descriptions of the Skye landscape  once more, I was struck with how similar it is to my home landscape of Kintyre, Gigha, Islay and Jura, particularly Jura, which is pictured below, with the isle of Gigha in the foreground.

I live in Kintyre, the long peninsula acting as a natural breakwater for the Firth of Clyde, west of Glasgow. A Permaculture and Transition practitioner, I am working with fellow community activists to co-create a resilient and vibrant local bioregion.
