BY CHRISTO­PHER CLEGG £20

Look­ing at the his­tory of the Euro­pean wild­cat and its ar­rival in Bri­tain, it fol­lows ac­counts of the an­i­mal and sight­ings of it all over Scot­land, their im­por­tance to the clans and heraldic crests, as well as their cur­rent habi­tats and diet. The chap­ter on swim­ming – once noted by Gavin Maxwell – is a real high­light.
