Is­lay Voices

SCOTS Heritage Magazine - - Books - Edited by Jenni Minto and Les Wil­son

Of­ten re­ferred to as the “Queen of the He­brides”, Is­lay has drawn many vis­i­tors to its shores with its wildlife and whisky. This an­thol­ogy fea­tures ac­counts of the is­land from its res­i­dents, from me­dieval times to the present, and Archibald Cameron’s pho­to­graphs give read­ers an un­re­stricted look into is­land life. With chap­ters rang­ing from folk be­lief, bards of the is­land, and the im­pact of war; this anal­ogy gives a var­ied and full ac­count of life on Is­lay through the years.
