The Rhinns at my shoulder

Every effort has been made to verify the accuracy of the event information but we recommend contacting the event organisers before attending.

The Ken Words project seeks to explore how our landscape can inspire our writing and the next event this Saturday afternoon is a guided walk beyond Polmaddy, through an evocative landscape which speaks to the Glenkens’ past, present and future.

The poet Angus Macmillan will lead a 2-hour, 3.5 km walk on the pack road from a point north of Polmaddy along to Braidenoch Hill and back. The Rhinns will have a presence throughout the walk and participants will be encouraged to examine how we come to view, understand and value landscape, not only in its spectacular forms but also in its more mundane varieties. There will be two pauses for reflection and writing and the 1 hour workshop afterwards will encourage the development of observations and field-notes into poems or short prose.
