From the Alleghenies to the Hebrides: An Autobiography (Paperback)

1. From the Alleghenies to the Hebrides: An Autobiography (Paperback)

Ref: 9781912476077

Margaret Fay Shaw's life spans a century of change. Orphaned at 11 she left home and school in Pennsylvania and Philadelphia aged 16, crossing to Scotland to spend a year at school near Glasgow. It was there that her love for Scotland was born.

After studying music in New York and Paris, she returned to live for six years with two sisters in South Uist. Life on the island had changed little from previous centuries, and material comforts were few. But the island was rich in music and tradition, and Margaret Fay Shaw's collection of Gaelic lore and song are amongst the most important made this century, whilst her photography evocatively captures the aura of a vanished world.

Her autobiography is the remarkable testament of a remarkable woman as well as a powerful plea in defence of a Gaelic culture and world under threat. It is written with a sharpness of observation, directness of humour and zest for life which make it a marvellous record of the twentieth century.

The Outer Hebrides: Landscapes in Stone (Paperback)

3. The Outer Hebrides: Landscapes in Stone (Paperback)

Ref: 9781780275093

The remote archipelago which lies off the north-west coast of Scotland boasts a huge range of contrasting and spectacular land- and seascapes. Lewis is austere, with a featureless peatland core, bounded by dramatic sea cliffs, whilst neighbouring Harris is extraordinarily rugged but fringed with stunning unspoilt beaches. The Uists are characterised by gentle fertile machair lands, and Barra has a more brutal landscape carved from ancient gnarled rock. But these islands have one thing in common: they were all built from the most ancient rocks in Britain - Lewisian gneiss, which reaches back almost to the beginning of geological time.

In this book Alan McKirdy explores these islands, together with the volcanic rocks that build the outposts of Rockall, St Kilda and the Shiants, tracing their extraordinary journey through time and across the globe.

Scotland's Voices (CD)

9. Scotland's Voices (CD)

Ref: CDTRAX400

The album includes tracks by the monumental Jeannie Robertson MBE (MacCrimmon’s Lament and The Battle of Harlaw); matriarch of The Stewarts of Blair, Belle Stewart MBE (The Berryfields of Blair and The Queen Among The Heather); bearing a wealth of Gaelic song and originally from Lewis, Dolina MacLennan (Tha Mi Duillich); the Border Shepherd, Willie Scott (Jamie Telfer of The Fair Dodheid and The Kielder Hunt); King of the Cornkisters, Jimmy MacBeath (Come All Ye Tramps and Hawkers and Drumdelgie); the internationally renowned revivalist Jean Redpath MBE (Auld Lang Syne); Shetland’s ambassador for the fiddle, Aly Bain MBE (Hector The Hero); and one of the three piping MacDonald brothers of Glenuig, Allan MacDonald (Thogail nam Bó).

We also thought it appropriate to include a self-penned track by Hamish Henderson (The Freedom Come All Ye) and a short poem from a key figure in the painting, Hugh MacDiarmid (The Watergaw). We’ve also included tracks by two singers not in the painting but who were approximate contemporaries of those portrayed: the internationally renowned exponent of Gaelic song, Flora MacNeil (A Mhic Iain Ic Sheumais) and the irrepressible Davie The Galoot Stewart (McGinty’s Meal and Ale).

Interestingly, the Jeannie Robertson track The Battle of Harlaw, from The School of Scottish Studies archives, was recorded by Hamish Henderson at one of his famous ceilidhs - live recordings do of course have their own challenges. Davie Stewart’s track McGinty’s Meal and Ale was recorded by the American collector, Alan Lomax.

Scottish Orientalism and the Indian Renaissance (Paperback)

10. Scottish Orientalism and the Indian Renaissance (Paperback)

Ref: 9781912147113

The historical relationship between Scotland and India is a relatively unexplored part of colonial history. This project seeks to re-examine the interchange of ideas initiated in the 18th century by the Scottish Enlightenment, and the ways in which these ideas were reformed and shaped to fit the changing social fabric of Scotland and India in the 19th and 20th centuries. In this volume, the significance and influence both nations had on the other is examined and brought to light for the first time. With contributions from key individuals and institutions in both Scotland and India, the range of ideas that were interchanged between the two nations will be explored in the contexts of culture studies, history, the social sciences and literature.

Jim Weatherston - Take Me Dancing (CD)

11. Jim Weatherston - Take Me Dancing (CD)

Ref: 880992158725

Does anybody really get to know Jim Weatherston?

Well yes! They do and I’m proud to number myself amongst them. He is open, and hopelessly opinionated. Sigh! But likeable in a big way!…….He is a very keen musician and a close and trusted honest good ol’ buddy. Anyone else would find him to be exactly that if they don’t cross him.

He is very proud of his long friendship with fellow musician and equally magnificent songwriter Charlie Milne. They, with George Archibald and Jim’s wife May, work well together in the acclaimed “Ragged Glory”.

I had the privilege of producing and recording Jim’s solo CD which has just been released. “Take Me Dancing”. It really is jam packed with goodies. Melodic, poignant, emotive, emotional and damned well clever self penned material.

Jim is a strong instrumentalist; generally guitar and bass, and his voice is reminiscent of Neil Young with a Scottish accent. (I am a Neil Young fan.)

The best I can say is that these songs are amongst the best and very stealable. I will be using some. Sorry Jim! I will try to get my own versions close to your own standards if I can. (Good luck Ian!)

The Teeger That Cam For His Tea (Paperback)

15. The Teeger That Cam For His Tea (Paperback)

Ref: 9781782504665

'There is a chap at the door jist as Sophie an her mum are sittin doon for their tea. Wha could it be? They dinna think it's a muckle, furry, strippit teeger -- that's for shair!' No children's bookshelf is complete without the classic The Tiger Who Came to Tea, but what if Sophie opened the door to find a teeger that's cam for his tea instead? Celebrating its 50th roaring anniversary in 2018, Judith Kerr's much-loved picture book is charmingly retold for the first time in Scots. Keeping all the iconic elements of the story, Scots expert Susan Rennie gives the words a lively Scots twist -- a plate of sandwiches becomes a 'hail plate o pieces' and the big, furry, stripy tiger becomes a 'muckle, furry, strippit teeger'. This bright and bonnie take on a childhood favourite is perfect for reading aloud with young children.

A Human Love Story: Journeys to the Heart (Paperback)

16. A Human Love Story: Journeys to the Heart (Paperback)

Ref: 9781780275000

Matt Hopwood set off with just a small bag and a walking stick, no possessions and an open mind to walk many hundreds of miles the length and breadth of the country. He relied entirely on the generosity of strangers for shelter and asked people to tell him their transforming stories. They did. All of these deeply enthralling, profoundly honest stories weave a web of tenderness, connection, compassion and community.

Setting out with only a few possessions and his beard, Matt walked 500 miles from Lindisfarne across the border into and around Scotland to Callanish, the home of the famous standing stones on the Isle of Lewis. "Scotland.....where the hard lines dissolve a little and the beauty and spirit of the earth finds an essential space," he writes.

For some people their love story will span decades and tell a tale of romantic love evolving through the passing years. Others' stories express fleeting moments of connection, care, concern. Most love stories are marked by sadness and loss. Some stories are concerned with maternal and paternal love, others with a love of place, a visceral connection with spirit through landscape. Love stories also connect deeply with our identities, in how we belong and how we are welcomed in society. Each story is different. Each beautiful. Each valuable.
