A NEW project ex­plor­ing five dis­tinct land­scapes in Skye is set to take place on the is­land in Septem­ber.

The project, Land Line: Five Walks in Skye, has been spe­cially com­mis­sioned by AT­LAS Arts in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Skye­based artist Caroline Dear.

Land Line is a se­ries of five walks over five days that will of­fer par­tic­i­pants the chance to ex­plore the lo­cal’s re­la­tion­ship with Skye’s unique en­vi­ron­ment.

Each walk will fo­cus on a par­tic­u­lar plant, and it’s con­nec­tion to the set­ting.

Spe­cial guests Maoil­ios Camp­bell, Gaelic poet, and Pro­fes­sor Tim In­gold, have been in­vited to take part in the event.

Com­ment­ing on the project, Caroline Dear said: ‘The lo­ca­tions we have se­lected are fas­ci­nat­ing to me on a per­sonal level and I think they will of­fer the start­ing point for many stim­u­lat­ing dis­cus­sions about our un­der­stand­ing of the land­scape and the plants within it.’

AT­LAS Arts pro­ducer, Shona Cameron said: ‘Part of what we do at AT­LAS is about cel­e­brat­ing the unique­ness of Skye and with this project we are com­bin­ing Caroline’s lo­cal knowl­edge and cre­ativ­ity with re­ally in­ter­est­ing guests to do just that.’

The walks which will take place from the Septem­ber 12-16, 2016 are open to all.
