The Isle of Lewis is at the north-west corner of the group of Scottish islands known as theHebrides, or Western Isles, which stretch for 100 miles. Lewis is the largest and most populatedof the Outer Hebridean islands and has notable archaeological sites including the NeolithicCallanish Stones, the Pictish Carloway Broch(roundhouse), and one of the smallest, but possibly one of the most famous archaeological finds- the Lewis Chess set - 78 Norse chessmen dating from the 12th century carved from Walrusivory depicting various figures such as church dignitaries and Viking warriors of the period.

This melody is used for hymns "Jesus Calls Us Here to Meet Him" by John Bell and Graham Maule, writers of the Iona Community; and "Come and find the quiet centre" by Shirley Erena Murray
