Eve Graham - A Matter of Time (CD)

Eve Graham - A Matter of Time (CD)


Ref: CDITV882

Eve Graham is equally at home, whether singing Contemporary Rock, Pop or Country Music. On this album she teams up, once again, with producer David Mackay, who crafted Eve's original hits with the New Seekers. Together they have chosen songs from some of the world's most prolific songwriters and included songs from new writer friends in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the UK and Australia. There's also a sprinkling of Eve's celtic heritage and a contribution from the former Piper to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The result is an album, refreshing in its diversity, yet with a definite lean towards a country theme, all bound by Eve's unmistakable voice and her power to entertain.

Highland Folk Ways (Paperback)


Ref: 9781912476305

This is the classic book on the ancient customs, crafts and techniques of the Scottish Highlands. The past is evoked with a fascinating blend of historical narrative and detail, with descriptions of the fireplaces and furniture, the creels and cas chroms which were a vital part of everyday life in the Highland communities, but which have now become strange in the modern world of machinery and technology.

Highland Folk Ways vividly describes the many aspects and artefacts of our ancestors' lives; the clothes, cooking utensils, weapons, food and the implements for fishing, farming and building are all meticulously depicted and placed in historical context. The book has over 70 illustrations, and is surely the definitive resource book for everyone who wants to rediscover the lifestyle of the clansmen and crofters.

Edinburgh Curiosities (Paperback)

Edinburgh Curiosities (Paperback)


Ref: 9781912476060

When did thousands of people last crowd into Edinburgh's High Street to witness an execution? Three brass bricks on the pavement mark the spot, but how many people notice them or know what they mean? As a fire engine roars along the road sirens blaring and lights flashing, what has that got to do with a fire of 1824? Why was Leith in mourning one bleak day in 1915 and where can you find a monument which commemorates the tragic event?

The answers are all in an expanded and revised edition of Edinburgh Curiosities. Thomson and Coghill have trawled through the city's characters to bring together a collection of the men and women who scandalised and inspired the city over the years. But in addition to the notorious, like the Porteous Riot, Deacon William Brodie - the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's Jekyll and Hyde - or Madeleine Smith, they look at other lesser known, but nevertheless fascinating, people and events. Stories you've maybe heard something about but don't know the detail. They also float intriguing speculation like the possibility of members of Ned Kelly's gang carrying out armed robberies in Leith after the bushranger was hanged in Australia. The result is a fascinating dip into Edinburgh's rich and varied past, which will appeal to natives and visitors alike.

Mary, Queen of Scots (Paperback)

Mary, Queen of Scots (Paperback)


Ref: 9781780275529

Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, has long been portrayed as one of history's romantically tragic figures. Devious, naive, beautiful and sexually voracious, often highly principled, she secured the Scottish throne and bolstered the position of the Catholic Church in Scotland. Her plotting, including probable involvement in the murder of her husband Lord Darnley, led to her flight from Scotland and imprisonment by her equally ambitious cousin and fellow queen, Elizabeth of England. Yet when Elizabeth ordered Mary's execution in 1587 it was an act of exasperated frustration rather than political wrath.

Unlike biographies of Mary predating this work, this masterly study set out to show Mary as she really was - not a romantic heroine, but the ruler of a European kingdom with far greater economic and political importance than its size or location would indicate. Wormald also showed that Mary's downfall was not simply because of the `crisis years' of 1565-7, but because of her way of dealing, or failing to deal, with the problems facing her as a renaissance monarch. She was tragic because she was born to supreme power but was wholly incapable of coping with its responsibilities. Her extraordinary story has become one of the most colourful and emotionally searing tales of western history, and it is here fully reconsidered by a leading specialist of the period. Jenny Wormald's beautifully written biography will appeal to students and general readers alike.

The ScotWays Guide to the Law of Access to Land in Scotland (Paperback)

The ScotWays Guide to the Law of Access to Land in Scotland (Paperback)


Ref: 9781910900284

The Scottish landscape is justly famed for its beauty and diversity, and Scots law provides good opportunities for people to enjoy access to this land.

This book aims to provide a user-friendly guide to the law of access in Scotland. It explains how the law works to regulate access to Scotland’s outdoors, who might be entitled to access land or inland waters, and the activities people are entitled to do there. An understanding of the multilayered framework of the law is crucial to clarify the rights and responsibilities of users and landowners/occupiers, and to minimise and resolve conflict.

This book will be of particular value to access professionals and advisers but is also suitable for general readers who are broadly interested in the subject or are seeking an answer to a specific point. The Scottish Rights of Way and Access Society (‘ScotWays’) is a charitable body dedicated to providing information and assistance about responsible access to land. It commends this book to all who cherish our country.

Scotland: Defending the Nation (Hardcover)


Ref: 9781780274935

Scotland: Defending the Nation: Mapping the Military Landscape

Scotland has had a uniquely important military history over the last five centuries. Conflict with England in the 16th century, Jacobite rebellions in the 18th century, 20th-century defences and the two world wars, as well as the Cold War, all resulted in significant cartographic activity.

In this book two map experts explore the extraordinarily rich legacy of Scottish military mapping, including fortification plans, reconnaissance mapping, battle plans, plans of military roads and routeways, tactical maps, plans of mines, enemy maps showing targets, as well as plans showing the construction of defences. In addition to plans, elevations and views, they also discuss unrealised proposals and projected schemes. Most of the maps - some of them reproduced in book form for the first time - are visually striking and attractive, and all have been selected for the particular stories they tell about both attacking and defending the country.

Skye: The Island and Its Legends (Paperback)

Skye: The Island and Its Legends (Paperback)


Ref: 9781912476336

This is a fabulous treasury of legend and wonder; tales of monsters who dwell in lakes, of small people who trap humans in earthen mounds where time stands still; of dark, shape- shifting spirits whose cloak of human form is betrayed by the sand and shells which fall from their hair. In the absence of a written tradition, for generations of Skianachs, these tales, handed down orally, contained the very warp and weft of Hebridean history. They take us far beyond Christian times, to the edge of the Iron Age, and interweave with threads from the wider Atlantic tradition of Gaelic heroic myth and legend.

Highland Herald: Reporting the News from the North (Paperback)

Highland Herald: Reporting the News from the North (Paperback)


Ref: 9781780275505

From 1988 to 2017 David Ross was the Highland Correspondent of The Herald. His patch stretched from the Mull of Kintyre in the south to the Shetland island of Unst in the north; and from St Kilda, in the West, to the whisky country of Speyside in the east. From his home on the Black Isle he covered all the big stories, from the fight against a nuclear waste dump in Caithness to plans to remove half a mountain on the island of Harris. He helped the first community land buyout in modern times in Assynt, covered in depth the anti-toll campaign on the Skye Bridge, the efforts to save Gaelic and protect ferry services.

In Highland Herald he reflects on the important issues which affected the Highlands and Islands during his time. He tells how his late father-in-law, the Gaelic poet Sorley MacLean, helped him. He had never written in depth about Sorley when he was alive, as it would have been `excruciatingly embarrassing for both of us', but does so now.

Mull and Iona: A Historical Guide (Paperback)

Mull and Iona: A Historical Guide (Paperback)


Ref: 9781780275253

Mull and Iona are two of the most visited islands in Scotland, and have played a central role in the history of the country. As the cradle of Christianity in Scotland, Iona has been a place of pilgrimage for almost 1,500 years and was a beacon of intellectual light during the Dark Ages, when magnificent works such as the Book of Kells were crafted by the monks of the abbey founded by St Columba.

This book provides a full and engaging history of the islands from the time of their earliest human inhabitants to the present day. The gazetteer lists all the places of interest from all periods in the islands' history, from the world-wide renowned churches, crosses and grave slabs on Iona and the magnificent restored Duart Castle on Mull, seat of the clan Maclean, to the planned village of Dervaig, the townships in the Ross of Mull and Ardmeanach which were cleared during the nineteenth century and the mausoleum of Lachlan MacQuarrie, the much esteemed 18th-century Governor of New South Wales.

Burroughs had the reputation of one of the most brutal of all Orkney landlords and, in a time of great economic change, the harshness of his actions made that change particularly traumatic.

When the Royal Commission whose findings were to lead to the Crofters Act arrived, Burroughs acted in character. He evicted any tenant who gave evidence to the Commission. As tension mounted a gunboat arrived off Rousay to keep the peace. As Burroughs' tyranny mounted it became clear his intention was to drive every tenant off the estate and he was only prevented by the belated passing of the Crofters' Act and even a special Act of Parliament directed specifically against him.

But both Burroughs and his tenants were rather unusual. Burroughs acted entirely out of principle, often proving unyielding where a more flexible approach would have yielded profit. Out of a sense of honour he even withheld information regarding the minister, one of his main enemies, which he could have used to destroy him. His tenants too were unusual, for the Orkney farmer was a far richer and more independent individual than the downtrodden crofters of the west coast. It is an extraordinary and dramatic story told brilliantly by the author, a story full of great characters and incident, a story set against the dark gales of economic change which were to sweep away both landlords and the communities they claimed to control. At the end of the book Burroughs, once a national hero, now reviled, emerges as a much more complex and human figure than history has painted him.

Eve Graham - A Matter of Time (CD)


Ref: CDITV882

Eve Graham is equally at home, whether singing Contemporary Rock, Pop or Country Music. On this album she teams up, once again, with producer David Mackay, who crafted Eve's original hits with the New Seekers. Together they have chosen songs from some of the world's most prolific songwriters and included songs from new writer friends in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the UK and Australia. There's also a sprinkling of Eve's celtic heritage and a contribution from the former Piper to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The result is an album, refreshing in its diversity, yet with a definite lean towards a country theme, all bound by Eve's unmistakable voice and her power to entertain.

Ref: 9781780274935

Scotland: Defending the Nation: Mapping the Military Landscape

Scotland has had a uniquely important military history over the last five centuries. Conflict with England in the 16th century, Jacobite rebellions in the 18th century, 20th-century defences and the two world wars, as well as the Cold War, all resulted in significant cartographic activity.

In this book two map experts explore the extraordinarily rich legacy of Scottish military mapping, including fortification plans, reconnaissance mapping, battle plans, plans of military roads and routeways, tactical maps, plans of mines, enemy maps showing targets, as well as plans showing the construction of defences. In addition to plans, elevations and views, they also discuss unrealised proposals and projected schemes. Most of the maps - some of them reproduced in book form for the first time - are visually striking and attractive, and all have been selected for the particular stories they tell about both attacking and defending the country.

Mull and Iona: A Historical Guide (Paperback)


Ref: 9781780275253

Mull and Iona are two of the most visited islands in Scotland, and have played a central role in the history of the country. As the cradle of Christianity in Scotland, Iona has been a place of pilgrimage for almost 1,500 years and was a beacon of intellectual light during the Dark Ages, when magnificent works such as the Book of Kells were crafted by the monks of the abbey founded by St Columba.

This book provides a full and engaging history of the islands from the time of their earliest human inhabitants to the present day. The gazetteer lists all the places of interest from all periods in the islands' history, from the world-wide renowned churches, crosses and grave slabs on Iona and the magnificent restored Duart Castle on Mull, seat of the clan Maclean, to the planned village of Dervaig, the townships in the Ross of Mull and Ardmeanach which were cleared during the nineteenth century and the mausoleum of Lachlan MacQuarrie, the much esteemed 18th-century Governor of New South Wales.

Highland Folk Ways (Paperback)

Highland Folk Ways (Paperback)


Ref: 9781912476305

This is the classic book on the ancient customs, crafts and techniques of the Scottish Highlands. The past is evoked with a fascinating blend of historical narrative and detail, with descriptions of the fireplaces and furniture, the creels and cas chroms which were a vital part of everyday life in the Highland communities, but which have now become strange in the modern world of machinery and technology.

Highland Folk Ways vividly describes the many aspects and artefacts of our ancestors' lives; the clothes, cooking utensils, weapons, food and the implements for fishing, farming and building are all meticulously depicted and placed in historical context. The book has over 70 illustrations, and is surely the definitive resource book for everyone who wants to rediscover the lifestyle of the clansmen and crofters.

Edinburgh Curiosities (Paperback)

Edinburgh Curiosities (Paperback)


Ref: 9781912476060

When did thousands of people last crowd into Edinburgh's High Street to witness an execution? Three brass bricks on the pavement mark the spot, but how many people notice them or know what they mean? As a fire engine roars along the road sirens blaring and lights flashing, what has that got to do with a fire of 1824? Why was Leith in mourning one bleak day in 1915 and where can you find a monument which commemorates the tragic event?

The answers are all in an expanded and revised edition of Edinburgh Curiosities. Thomson and Coghill have trawled through the city's characters to bring together a collection of the men and women who scandalised and inspired the city over the years. But in addition to the notorious, like the Porteous Riot, Deacon William Brodie - the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's Jekyll and Hyde - or Madeleine Smith, they look at other lesser known, but nevertheless fascinating, people and events. Stories you've maybe heard something about but don't know the detail. They also float intriguing speculation like the possibility of members of Ned Kelly's gang carrying out armed robberies in Leith after the bushranger was hanged in Australia. The result is a fascinating dip into Edinburgh's rich and varied past, which will appeal to natives and visitors alike.

Mary, Queen of Scots (Paperback)

Mary, Queen of Scots (Paperback)


Ref: 9781780275529

Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, has long been portrayed as one of history's romantically tragic figures. Devious, naive, beautiful and sexually voracious, often highly principled, she secured the Scottish throne and bolstered the position of the Catholic Church in Scotland. Her plotting, including probable involvement in the murder of her husband Lord Darnley, led to her flight from Scotland and imprisonment by her equally ambitious cousin and fellow queen, Elizabeth of England. Yet when Elizabeth ordered Mary's execution in 1587 it was an act of exasperated frustration rather than political wrath.

Unlike biographies of Mary predating this work, this masterly study set out to show Mary as she really was - not a romantic heroine, but the ruler of a European kingdom with far greater economic and political importance than its size or location would indicate. Wormald also showed that Mary's downfall was not simply because of the `crisis years' of 1565-7, but because of her way of dealing, or failing to deal, with the problems facing her as a renaissance monarch. She was tragic because she was born to supreme power but was wholly incapable of coping with its responsibilities. Her extraordinary story has become one of the most colourful and emotionally searing tales of western history, and it is here fully reconsidered by a leading specialist of the period. Jenny Wormald's beautifully written biography will appeal to students and general readers alike.

The ScotWays Guide to the Law of Access to Land in Scotland (Paperback)

The ScotWays Guide to the Law of Access to Land in Scotland (Paperback)


Ref: 9781910900284

The Scottish landscape is justly famed for its beauty and diversity, and Scots law provides good opportunities for people to enjoy access to this land.

This book aims to provide a user-friendly guide to the law of access in Scotland. It explains how the law works to regulate access to Scotland’s outdoors, who might be entitled to access land or inland waters, and the activities people are entitled to do there. An understanding of the multilayered framework of the law is crucial to clarify the rights and responsibilities of users and landowners/occupiers, and to minimise and resolve conflict.

This book will be of particular value to access professionals and advisers but is also suitable for general readers who are broadly interested in the subject or are seeking an answer to a specific point. The Scottish Rights of Way and Access Society (‘ScotWays’) is a charitable body dedicated to providing information and assistance about responsible access to land. It commends this book to all who cherish our country.

Skye: The Island and Its Legends (Paperback)

Skye: The Island and Its Legends (Paperback)


Ref: 9781912476336

This is a fabulous treasury of legend and wonder; tales of monsters who dwell in lakes, of small people who trap humans in earthen mounds where time stands still; of dark, shape- shifting spirits whose cloak of human form is betrayed by the sand and shells which fall from their hair. In the absence of a written tradition, for generations of Skianachs, these tales, handed down orally, contained the very warp and weft of Hebridean history. They take us far beyond Christian times, to the edge of the Iron Age, and interweave with threads from the wider Atlantic tradition of Gaelic heroic myth and legend.

Highland Herald: Reporting the News from the North (Paperback)

Highland Herald: Reporting the News from the North (Paperback)


Ref: 9781780275505

From 1988 to 2017 David Ross was the Highland Correspondent of The Herald. His patch stretched from the Mull of Kintyre in the south to the Shetland island of Unst in the north; and from St Kilda, in the West, to the whisky country of Speyside in the east. From his home on the Black Isle he covered all the big stories, from the fight against a nuclear waste dump in Caithness to plans to remove half a mountain on the island of Harris. He helped the first community land buyout in modern times in Assynt, covered in depth the anti-toll campaign on the Skye Bridge, the efforts to save Gaelic and protect ferry services.

In Highland Herald he reflects on the important issues which affected the Highlands and Islands during his time. He tells how his late father-in-law, the Gaelic poet Sorley MacLean, helped him. He had never written in depth about Sorley when he was alive, as it would have been `excruciatingly embarrassing for both of us', but does so now.
