“A sparkling book which could well become a Scottish humorous classic.” -- THE SCOTSMAN
From the Publisher
The Hills is Lonely
tells a simple tale: needing to recuperate from an illness, the author finds a suitable retreat on the Hebridean island of Bruach, whose inhabitants, routines, and rituals are as eccentric and entertaining as any reader could wish. Beckwith’s narrative describing island life is filled with humor, surprise, affection, and keen observance. Originally published in 1959.
