View across the Outer Harbour of Stornoway

I have copied my poetic writings onto a separate blogsite, Writings from Castle Town and after today, will blog the poetry there. Those who follow my writings on Facebook will see a feed from that blog on my wall. I am contemplating whether to publish these in book form, but have not yet decided.

Castle Town is a username I adopted on Blipfoto, a site where you can post one photograph each day, something I have been doing for the past 3 years. Castle Town refers to Lews Castle in Stornoway, and to the castle in my home town in the Netherlands. Pictures from both castles are featured in the Writings blog. 


  1. Great idea to put them together in a book. For anyone, but especially those in your part of the world, it would be a nice collection to have. It's nice you have some lovely castles in you life, there and at home. They are a part of history that lives on.

  2. I think putting the poems in a book is a good idea!
