Poacher's Pilgrimage

The islands of the Outer Hebrides are home to some of the most remote and spectacular scenery in the world: mysterious structures including stone circles, beehive dwellings, holy wells and 'temples' from the Celtic era. Travelling over moors and mountains – not to mention torrential rivers! – Alastair McIntosh walked from the most southerly tip of Harris to the northerly Butt of Lewis in 12 days. He tells of a journey through space and time, across a physical landscape and into a spiritual one. As he battled with his own ability to endure some of the toughest terrain in Britain, he met with the healing power of the land and its communities. This is a moving tale, a powerful reflection of imaginative hope for humankind.

Alastair is an independent writer, broadcaster, speaker and activist who is involved in a wide range of contemporary issues, from land reform, globalization and nonviolence to psychology, spirituality and ecology. He features regularly on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio Scotland.
