CÒIG SGIATHAN FIVE WINGS ATLAS Arts has collaborated with local walking groups and artists to curate a series of walks around the Isle of Skye and Lochalsh. Walking has been the source of inspiration for artists, poets, writers and thinkers for generations. It is also central to many people’s lives, be it for pleasure or livelihood. This programme connects community, art and the environment through a series of walks designed to highlight different areas of Skye and Lochalsh and introduce participants to the work of local artists and how the environment inspires their creativity.
