The Kerracher Man

Eric MacLeod


'Few of us can imagine living without a lavatory, without a secure roof over our heads, without vehicular access to our home indeed most people would now think such privation to be incompatible with civilization. Far less can we imagine raising a young family in such conditions while somehow managing to scrape a living from the sea and a desolate landscape. Yet this is what Eric and Ruth MacLeod chose to do in 1976; to abandon their comfortable home and jobs for Eric's remote grandparental croft on the wild seaboard of the North West Highlands.'

Within the compound and wayleaves a new, temporary world will form, bounded by sea, mountains and sky. Site Works is the story of the men and their work, transients creating something permanent and greater than they know.

Fiction


Love, Revenge and Buttered Scones

Bobbie Darbyshire


An innocent meeting of a reading group sparks a series of bizarre events. Three troubled people, driven by loneliness, vanity and revenge, hurl themselves on Inverness public library to find that nothing is as they expect. Henry, Peter and Elena. Each agitated. Each seeking release. We've all done it - gone haring off after one thing and found another entirely - but never as surprisingly as these three. It's Friday evening, 18th February 2000, and we're in for an unsettling weekend among the book stacks of the library, on the blizard-bound streets, in the recesses of the Loch Craggan Hotel and on the treacherous mountain above.
