  • A Hebridean Naturalist's Journal 1817-1818

    A Hebridean Naturalist's Journal 1817-1818

    A Hebridean Naturalist's Journal 1817-1818 by William MacGillivray. Edited by Dr Robert Ralph. William MacGillivray was just 21, on the verge of his career as an outstanding naturalist and bird artist, when he left Aberdeen to spend a year at his childhood home at Northton in Harris. In that year he kept a detailed journal that provides a rare insight into the rural life of 19th century Scotland, especially of the Outer Isles. MacGillivray recorded details of everything that happened in his daily life, the weather, his feelings about the people he met, the food that he ate, the clothes that he wore, even the games that his family played in the evening. Running through the journal is his love of natural history. He wrote about the birds and plants that he saw and made detailed descriptions of them. This year in Harris was to set MacGillivray on the path to becoming one of Scotland's finest naturalists, first in Edinburgh and finally as Regius Professor of Natural History at Aberdeen University.

  • Ceòl Chaluim

    Ceòl Chaluim

    The Pipe Music of Calum Campbell of Benbecula. "This collection of music composed by the late Calum Campbell of Benbecula is a very welcome addition to the published repertoire of pipe music. I was fortunate to have known Calum and I remember with warm affection his love of the music and his interest in composing tunes for the pipes. Until the staff at The National Piping Centre took on the task of typesetting his tunes for this publication, I was unaware of the amount of music Calum had written. His tunes are closely tied with the community from which he came, and the Hebridean musical influence, which Calum was nurtured in as one of a family of pipers, leaps from each page." - Roddy MacLeod, MBE

  • Còisir nan Gunna

    Còisir nan Gunna

    Còisir nan Gunna le Anndra A. Dunn (2013) 224 pages. Is e 1940 a th'ann agus tha an cogadh ann an Eòrpa a' dol gu làidir, le airmean Hitler a' dèanamh ionnsaigh air gach dùtha agus feum aig Breatainn agus an Fhraing seasamh nan aghaidh. Uill, sin a shaoil Uilleam MacLeòid nuair a chaidh e don arm, co-dhiù. Anns an Fhraing chan eil càil a' tachairt, agus chan eil ann an cogadh Uilleam ach sàirdseantan fiadhaich, bully beef a-mach a tionaichean, a' seasamh faire ann an trainnse airson uairean-a-thìde fada- agus sabaid ghoirid gheur bho àm gu àm. Chan e seo na bha e a' sùileachadh bhon chogadh, ach 's dòcha gum fàsadh e cleachdte ris; mura biodh airmean a' Ghearmailt ag ullachadh airson blitzkrieg mhòr ris nach eil an Fhraing neo Breatainn deiseil idir, agus a bheir Uilleam agus a charaidean sios an rathad iargalta a tha a' stad aig baile beag oir-thìr na Frainge: Saint Valéry-en-Caux. _____________________________________________________ Aiteal: Sreath de sgrìobhaidean sgoinneil bho sgrìobhaidearan sgaiteach.
