    Stornoway's Famous Sons

    by Orchid Written Apr 13, 2013

    Favorite thing: I have had the pleasure of reading Kevin MacNeil's rather dark tale of the life of R Stornoway, a resident of the eponymous town who wants to escape, but cannot seem to the break the apron strings that island hold on him.

    I have read every word the great Scottish Science Fiction writer Ken MacLeod has written, from 'The Star Fraction', described as "a successful comic Trotskyist science fiction novel" (we need more of them), to the most recent 'Intrusion', whence the author brings the scene back to Lewis for its finale

    Fondest memory: In Stornoway I observed a fish and chips shop. On the floor there was laying a bagpiper playing. Over him an accordion player was doing a mean tune. Around them a fiddle player was dancing. They called it a Celtic festival….
    What more can you ask for?

    The pub on the picture was packed well beond the limit the evening before!

    Favorite thing: It seems most pictures of the outer Hebrides are of a wild and naked nature. In Stornoway we discovered this forest that supprised me simply because I wasn't expecting it!

    Fondest memory: Great people and very friendly. I hope to come back one day and really explore those islands.
