'The Mail Bag' - National Trust for Scotland Inverewe Gardens collaborative artist residency.

About this project

The postmen from the mailboat on its way from Stornoway to Poolewe purchased a fair wind from a wise woman.  Against advice, they untied the third knot as they approached Am Ploc Ard.

A storm blew up, they were dashed ashore. It blew all the thatch off the houses in the area.  Now, that mail bag was lost. It contained correspondence, packets of black earth from afar, seeds & plants ordered by Osgood H. Mackenzie.
Some of the letters were retrieved, but many have never been found..until now
