In 1937 Louis MacNeice and his friend Nancy visited the Hebrides. Following loosely in the footsteps of Johnson and Boswell, MacNeice describes with distinctive candour the people, customs and landscapes of the Hebrides. Alienated from the way of life he encountered in the islands yet utterly fascinated by it, Louis MacNeice provides a unique insight into a now vanished culture and, as such, the book is a fascinating social historical document of Scottish rural life in the late 1930s.

Louis MacNeice was born in Belfast in 1907. Educated in England (Marlborough and Oxford), he lectured in Classics in Birmingham and London. In 1941 he joined the BBC Features Department and was responsible for many classic productions, including his own radio play 'The Dark Tower' (music by Benjamin Britten). He died in 1963 while recording sound-effects in a cave for the BBC.
