Bronze panoramic panel for Ionad Chaluim Chille Ile
We produced two interpretation panels for the Gaelic College on the Isle of Islay. The project called for a bird identification panel and telescope and a Gaelic Landscape panoramic panel for Ionad Chaluim Chille Ile. So it was with great hardship (LOL) that I had to go to Islay one February to spend a long weekend looking at birds and exploring the Gaelic landscape in preparation for this panel.
Loch Indaal is a fantastic place and you can read about it on the Isle of Islay website. And the Ionad Chaluim Chille Ile – the Gaelic College is a great place to visit and learn about the Island’s Gaelic culture.
The panorama panel was produced in bronze and included detailed text and images in English and Gaelic. So it does look a bit wordy and the best advice for interpretation is keep the words to about 250. But why would you not want to spend time here and read the panel properly. You can even get it translated at the Gaelic college – Ionad Chaluim Chille Ile.
Here is the poem Norman Bissell of the Scottish Centre for Geopoetics wrote for the panel.
Tha an t-uisage aodomhainn seo sàmhach an-ceartuair
Ach a-nochd tilidh na cathain
These shallow waters are quiet now
But tonight the barnacles will return
