Walking on Uist and Barra

Vatersay Raiders [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Walking on Uist and Barra by Mike Townsend Book Summary:

This guide offers 40 walking routes on the Uists and Barra - a unique 100km cluster of islands in Scotland's Outer Hebrides. The walks are varied and graded, from short, flat beach walks beside crystal clear waters to long excursions across wild mountainous terrain, the routes visit all the major islands from Berneray to Vatersay but also those smaller and offshore such as Eriskay and Mingulay. Routes are described in four sections, by area, and illustrated with vivid colour photographs and OS mapping. Walking across these landscapes, especially the hill country, gives a sense of remoteness and peaceful solitude that cannot be found in the mainland's National Parks or on the Munros busy with peak baggers. Despite a relatively narrow area, Uist and Barra's diverse islands offer a contrasting walking terrain and many ancient historic sites such as chambered cairns and standing stones as well as lots of local wildlife. Upland areas are home to red deer and golden and white-tailed eagles, while along the coast grey seals are common and thousands of birds set up their breeding grounds in the machair. Daily flights between Glasgow and Benbecula as well as the ferry network mean that all of the islands are readily accessible.

Highland Resistance

Vatersay Raiders [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Highland Resistance by Iain Fraser Grigor Book Summary:

Highland Resistance takes as its subject the record of land-centred (and by implication culture- and nationality- centred) conflict in the Highlands of Scotland during the two and a half centuries since the Jacobite rising of 1745. The book tells the story of anti-landlord agitation and direct-action land-raiding from the great sheep-drives in Sutherland at the end of the eighteenth century, on through the anti-eviction resistance that characterised the worst years of the notorious Clearances, and on again by way of the huge crofters’ agitation of the 1880s to continuing inter-war raiding and reform and the last great land-grab at Knoydart in the 1940s. By setting this record in its context Highland Resistance shows its continuing political and cultural importance to our own times, as Scotland and her reborn parliament enter a new century and a new millennium. The principal arguments of Highland Resistance are that there is a long and deep anti-landlord tradition in the Highlands; that this tradition has been under-pinned with an identity that can justly be identified as one of agrarian and cultural radicalism and nationalism; and that this tradition in one form or another lives on today, with a sharp and controversial resonance for the Highlands, and Scotland, of tomorrow.

Mingulay

Vatersay Raiders [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Mingulay by Ben Buxton Book Summary:

"A remote, barren and ruggedly beautiful island lies at the southern end of the Outer Hebrides, Mingulay was once home to more than 150 people who lived by crofting, fishing, and catching seabirds on cliffs which are among the highest in Scotland. But, set in the stormy Atlantic Ocean, life became increasingly tough andf the people sought better lives elsewhere by grabbing land on a less remote island. By 1912, they had abandoned Mingulay to the seabirds and sheep.The story of St. Kilda is well documented, but that of Mingulay and its tow neighbours, Berneray and Pabbay, no less poignant, is told here for the first time."--Back cover.

Island Going

Vatersay Raiders [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Island Going by Robert Atkinson Book Summary:

In July 1935, Robert Atkinson and John Ainslie set out on an ornithological search for the rare Leach's Fork-tailed Petrel. Their search was to last for twelve years and to take them from their Oxford base to many of the remote and often deserted islands off the North West coast of Scotland (including North Uist, the Monarch Isles and St Kilda), to an almost inaccessible North Rona and, their search rewarded, beyond. Robert Atkinson's account of his twelve year adventure provides a detailed and emotive description of the wildlife and landscape of the Hebridean outlanders. He recounts with clarity his first sighting of a puffin, 'So brand new was this unique first insight of puffins ... they might have been of fresh creation: bright fantastic dolls but alive!', and explains in detail the effort entailed in reaching the most inaccessible of islands. But more than that he records with compassion the primitive lifestyles of the islanders, their living conditions, traditions and histories and notes too the changes they witnessed as the war years came and went. His writing has inspired many of the later accounts of Hebridean travel. Atkinson's account of his travels has established itself as one of the greatest of all memoirs of sailing in the Hebrides.

Lost Edinburgh

Vatersay Raiders [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Lost Edinburgh by Hamish Coghill Book Summary:

[an] admirably sensible and fascinating guide' - The Scotsman 'Lost Edinburgh is the latest addition to a first-class series of books from Birlinn... detailing the literal and deliberate destruction of the very fabric of our heritage.' - Tom Kyle, Daily Mail What happened to Edinburgh's once notorious but picturesque Tolbooth Prison? Where was the Black Turnpike, once a dominant building in the town? Why has one of the New Town designer's major layouts been all but obliterated? What else has been lost in Edinburgh? From Edinburgh's mean beginnings - 'wretched accommodation, no comfortable houses, no soft beds', visiting French knights complained in 1341 - it went on to attract some of the world's greatest architects to design and build and shape a unique city. But over the centuries many of those fine buildings have gone. Some were destroyed by invasion and civil strife, some simply collapsed with old age and neglect, and others were swept away in the 'improvements' of the nineteenth century. Yet more fell to the developers' swathe of destruction in the twentieth century. Much of the medieval architecture vanished in the Old Town, Georgian Squares were attacked, Princes Street ruined, old tenements razed in huge slum clearance drives, and once familiar and much loved buildings vanished. The changing pattern of industry, social habits, health service, housing and road systems all took their toll; not even the city wall was immune. The buildings which stood in the way of what was deemed progress are the heritage of Lost Edinburgh. In this informative and stimulating book. Hamish Coghill sets out to trace many of the lost buildings and find out why they were doomed. Lavishly illustrated, "Lost Edinburgh" is a fascinating insight into an ever-changing cityscape.
