FOYL: Flight of Your Life. Made famous by Compton Mackenzie in Whisky Galore, Barra produced its own quota of maritime heroes in the Second World War. Like most of the western isles of Scotland, it furnished a disproportionate number of men for the Merchant Navy, the arm of service which, along with Bomber Command, suffered the highest rate of casualties.

Though I had, over the years, visited many of the Hebridean islands and was familiar with the faces they present to the outside world, I soon realized how superficial my impressions were. uk), offered me the opportunity to write about the islands off the west of Scotland, I accepted the commission with alacrity.

The writing is lilting yet rugged; at one with islands. It is a slow, absorbing view of a special part of Scotland and its people.A good read!
