Trev is having a short holiday from Shetland and is visiting the Isle of Lewis, one of the Outer Hebridian Islands. He has been learning a bit about some of the treasures of Lewis and today he visited the beach where the Lewis Chessmen were found. He posed with a huge carved wooden copy of one of the Kings that were found.

We visited the big touring exhibition about the Lewis Chessmen when it came to Shetland and really enjoyed seeing some of the pieces.
