Morrison Square works in Bowmore, Islay, now complete

Islay News in stencil

It started a couple of months ago, now it is pretty much complete: Over the weekend a friend from Islay sent me the latest pictures of Morrison Square in Bowmore, some of them I'll show you below. Before you look at them you might want to look at the previous updates to refresh your memory: Morrison Square Works, Bowmore, Islay and Progress on Morrison Square in Bowmore, Islay should give a good idea what happened previously.

Let me start with a panoramic view of the whole square. As the space I've got available here is limited in size follow this link for a larger version of the panorama of Morrison Square:

We continue with two views from the same vantage point, first looking towards the left with Main Street:

Next we turn right and look towards the tourist information centre, I think the way the stairs are laid out looks much more inviting:

Now we move to the side of the square, first looking from School Street over to the bank:

Then we switch sides and look from the bank over to School Street:

Now you might have spotted the ‘round thing’ in the centre of the square, taking a closer look we get to see it's actually a map/ outline of Islay:

Now I can't speak for others, but I quite like it. To me it looks fresher, more open, more welcoming. The paths kind of lead you into the square, which I assume was the intention. Of course it looks a bit bare at the moment, but I expect the flowerbeds will bring some colour to it next spring. What do you think, do you like it?
