Wild Island

I've just finished reading 'Wild Island A Year in the Hebrides' by Jane Smith and I didn't want it to end!

If you're a fan of great wildlife art, the landscape of western Scotland, and descriptive and evocative writing this book is for you! The book is about the year in the life of a Hebridean island called Oronsay that is an RSPB nature reserve. The wildlife, farming and the people that live and work on the island feature in the book. I can't recommend this book highly enough. As a friend said to me today it is a book to escape in to when things in life are going pear-shaped! I couldn't agree more.

Below are just a couple of samples of the artwork to be found in the book. It's therapy for the soul; enjoy!
