Shona currently lives in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis but is originally from South Uist. She is the Digital Heritage Project Officer at Museum nan Eileen and has worked in the heritage sector for 5 years. Shona’s story focuses on the challenges of facing the initial lockdown with the uncertainty of how long it would last and the inability to prepare. Shona also offers some tours around the main streets and harbour of Stornoway which was impacted by the lockdown restrictions meaning that she had to convert her tour into a self-guided tour – many of these adjustments were made and from a professional perspective Shona was able to thrive. However, she also discusses the difficulties in being unable to pop over to South Uist and see her family whenever she liked as she would often visit every couple of weeks and would be able to go back often for her work. The difficulties of living alone during such an uncertain time is something that many will be able to relate to and Shona’s story offers the unique perspective of living on an island and being unable to see your family who also live on an island – the pressure and worry of ensuring that you keep these two vulnerable communities safe whilst doing what is best for your own wellbeing.
