The Last Laird Of Coll Scotland

Kenneth Stewart is the last of the old Lairds of Coll, one of the loveliest of all the Hebridean islands. In this book Mairi Hedderwick, one of the island's best known inhabitants who has also known the laird since her first visit to the island more than fifty years ago, explores the laird's lifelong connection with Coll. The love of both for the island and its people shine through in these entrancing recollections. They reveal both the beauty of the island as well as the harshness of island life and the incredible story of how the laird inherited an estate burdened with debt, spending his life trying to rebuild a livelihood from it.
