Skye festival fans in for a treat
VISITORS to this year’s Skye Book Festival are in for a treat.
Organisers of the festival, which runs from August 31 to September 2, have revealed that Graeme Macrae Burnet – author of His Bloody Project, the story of a 17-year-old Highland boy who committed a triple homicide in the 1800s – will be a guest at this year’s event.
Macrae Burnet will speak and read excerpts from his book at an event hosted by his uncle Alasdair MacRae, also a celebrated figure in Scottish literature.
Skye Book Festival chairman Donald MacDonald, of Aros, said: ‘Festival- goers are in for a treat with this unique Wester Ross double-header.’
