Fifty years ago Gavin Maxwell went to the west coast of Scotland, to live in an abandoned house on a shingle beach at the bottom of a steep drop with a miniature bay and islands, magical waterfall and encircling stream of vivid water. He called it Camusfearna, and forty years ago wrote his immortal classic about the place, "Ring of Bright Water". His record of life with the wild creatures of that landscape, especially the domesticated otters, continued in "The Rocks Remain" and "Raven Seek Thy Brother". This trilogy offers a single narrative of Maxwell's story.
