Silent Sunday: A Light to Guide You

Riding Out the Storm at Portsoy

Clan Cancer Support, in partnership with Wild in Art, shone a light across the north-east, Moray, Orkney and Shetland with Light the North, a lighthouse trail from 9 August to 17 October 2021. It was designed to provide a light in the dark for people affected by cancer and the lighthouses were later auctioned off to raise funds for the charity.

The above lighthouse, Riding Out the Storm by mosaic artist Rachel Davies, stood on a plinth at Portsoy harbour during this time and the local community loved it so much they wanted to keep it. With the help of crowdfunding organised by the Portsoy 75 Club and the local community, they succeeded in offering the winning bid.

We have been meaning to visit the area and this particular lighthouse for some time and it is lovely to see every little detail of the mosaics up close.

Wishing you all a blessed Sunday and may you always have a light to guide you through the storms,

with love from Xenia xxx
