Comunn Eachdraidh Nis is to host an exhibition and launch event heralding the re-publication of a photographic tribute to details of a past lifestyle.

Dan Morrison’s book Nis Aosmhor, first published by Stornoway publishers Acair in 1997, shows 114 images of Ness life, with captions in English and Gaelic.

Acair's new edition of the book has enhanced the photographs using digital restoration techniques, to create a crisp new presentation that does justice to the stunning photographs.

The launch on Tuesday November 26th will include short presentations by Finlay Macleod, Iain Gordon MacDonald and Iain MacLeod, who was a relative of Dan Morrison.

CEN is also opening an exhibition of 20 of the newly restored images, which generate nostalgia for a way of life which is already changing out of recognition. It depicts the distinctive Hebridean crofting way of life and shows landmarks, scenes and landscapes which have changed beyond recognition.

The event starts at 7pm on Tuesday 26th, books will be available for purchase and refreshments will be served. The book is also available to pre-order at or by phoning the office on 01851 703020.
