Ian Stephen

Ian Stephen is from Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis and he travels widely as a sailor and storyteller. He was a coastguard watch manager in Stornoway before resigning to concentrate on work in the arts. His storytelling is indebted to his connections with the maritime world, navigating through Scotland’s sea stories. He also passes on stories from  Lewis which are so far unrecorded and researches and revives Hebridean tales. He is the author of Western Isles Folk Tales (2015).
