What a glowious book. Mairi Hedderwick travelled through all the Hebridean Islands in the 80's painting and drawing as she went, and this is the culmination of that. Definitely a book for adults to marvel at the pictures, and she captures the essence of the Hebrides so well, the magic is included in this book. Perfect for inducing a flush of wanderlust, or just to escape to another place and time for a little while. A book to treasure forever more. Thanks Mairi! :)

Lovely little book full of her engaging watercolour sketches. If you like the paintings in the Katie Morgag books you will love this.
She has a nice narative style which makes it very easy to read.

Great to have by your side or in the pocket when touring. Even better when after the trip one can browse and remember all the beautiful places.

I have collected all of Mairi Hedderwick's illustrated books about her journeys through Scotland and I never tire of looking at them.

An excellent book which does transmit a genuine feeling
of life on the islands. Extra good if read with Hedderwick's
"Sea Change".

If you have enjoyed anything else by Mairi Hedderwick (Katy Morag etc.) you will love this. Amusing stories of real folk with captivating illustrations. We had a wonderful holiday on Mull a couple of years ago, and the book captures the atmosphere exactly. It made me want to visit some other Hebridean Islands. Enjoyable as an armchair read and as inspiration to go out and explore the real thing. I read this book a couple of years ago and I can still remember the pictures in my mind's eye - salty fishermen, smiling cats, big skys, bewhiskered postman, dilapidated VW camper van. Do buy it.

The writing and beautiful illustrations really evoke the Hebrides. Having been up there twice, it's a reminder to go again.

Lovely book with beautiful illustrations and fascinating insights into the islands, albeit from 20 years ago. A gentle book for reading over and over and inspiration, if needed, to go to the Hebrides and the west coast.
