Tales of the North Coast
To mark the 40th anniversary of the original publication a facsimile edition of the original book has now been published in paperback.
In this collection of fifty-eight tales Alan Temperley and the pupils of Farr Secondary School have built a memorial to the great tradition of Highland story telling. Simply told and unadorned, these tales are wide-ranging; historical dramas, fairy tales, great battles and ship wreck, ghost stories, Highland rogues-and the tragic Clearance of Strathnaver.
Pibrochs and Poppies
The story of north west Sutherland’s WWI Pipers
In 2015 Strathnaver Museum and Feis air an Oir, the traditional music group for north west Sutherland, embarked on an important project to remember the pipers from Mackay Country who were involved in the First World War.
This short booklet tells the story of just some of these brave men whilst giving a brief overview of the historical context of the ‘pipes of war’.
