Woo hoo! Here we are in Lewis, land of my people! (the MacIver ones, anyway). We’ll be staying for a few days in Stornoway, the capital.
This is also the land of the Disney film, Brave.
I did not know this until Alekka finally talked me into watching the DVD with her this last spring. Hey! Those are the Lewis chessmen.
And the Standing Stones of Callanais!
And then (the clincher) – the witch says she’s going to a coven in… Stornoway!
I looked it up. The research team was all over the western isles, but they drew the setting mainly from Lewis.
Our 15 minutes of fame.
I still haven’t seen Brave. We must watch it tonight with this friendly connection! 😉
