Poetry Landmarks



(Associated Place)


The dramatically beautiful Assynt area - it's landscape, lochs, harbours, mountains and people - are lovingly and meticulously celebrated in the poetry of the late Norman McCaig. McCaig's family roots were in the western isles and far north of Scotland; he lived most of his life in Edinburgh, but his passion for this part of Scotland remained undiminished and was a constant source of reflection, inspiration and comfort to him.
See his 'Collected Poems', 'Voice Over', 'The World's Room' etc. and his poems celebrating the mountains of the area - Suilven, Stac Polly and Cul Beag.
