Pabay - An Is­land Odyssey

Scottish Field - - COVER TO COVER -

BY CHRISTO­PHER A. WHATLEY BIR­LINN LTD.

£20

‘Pabay’ is a fas­ci­nat­ing ac­count of the in­con­spic­u­ous is­land off the south eastern coast of Skye. Whatley gives the his­tor­i­cal back­ground of Pabay and talks of happy mem­o­ries he had vis­it­ing through­out the two decades his aunt and un­cle lived there. He proudly re­flects on the self-suf­fi­cient na­ture they adopted and writes with great depth of the place to which he de­vel­oped a pro­found per­sonal at­tach­ment as a child. This book is both his­tor­i­cally in­sight­ful and charm­ingly per­sonal.
