Scotch On The Rocks

Scotch on the RocksScotch on the Rocks Scotch on the Rocks tells the fascinating story of how the 8,000 ton Politician, with its enormous cargo of nearly a quarter of a million bottles of duty-free whisky, ran aground off the coast of the Hebridean island of Eriskay in 1941. It was enroute to join an Atlantic convoy heading for the West Indies and then up to Canada where it is thought that its precious cargo was to be sold. The true story of 'The Polly' has its own place in Scotland’s social history and Antonia Swinson has put the story in an entirely new context for a self-confident devolved Scotland.
