The opening of this £19.5 Million project, is a mark of five years’ work, a new cultural landmark for Stornoway, a regeneration project headed by Comhairle nan Eilean Siar. The museum focuses on the local livelihood of the Outer Hebrides, focusing on the connection between the sea, land and the people. Part of the museum includes some archaeological finds, loaned by National Museums Scotland- featuring a striking Viking Silver Coin hoard from across the Outer Hebrides.

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar contacted Stone Sign Company prior to the unveiling to create two high quality unveiling plaques, to mark this significant occasion. Stone Sign selected two pieces of premium quality York Sandstone & the finest Blue-Black Welsh Slate for the unveiling. Whilst the York Stone engraving was left natural, the Welsh Slate was hand painted. Both plaques were hand finished to the highest standard and were sent to Stornoway for unveiling.

These plaques demonstrate Stone Sign’s quality in craftsmanship and skill in producing beautiful commemorative & unveiling plaques. If you have any questions or enquiries regarding our products, please phone a member of our team on 029 2067 2823 or email info@stonesign.com.
